US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday accused US President Barack Obama of having an "explicit policy of creating 'daylight' between Israel and the US," in an op-ed he penned in the Wall Street Journal.

In his article entitled "A New Course for the Middle East," Romney wrote that he believes the US Administration has failed to advance American interests in the region, citing Israel as an example of an ally that has been ignored and let down. "The president began his term with the explicit policy of creating 'daylight' between our two countries," Romney wrote. US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice had used the same expression last month to deny any rift between the two countries in an interview with CNN, saying "the United States is in constant communication with Israel" and adding "there is no daylight" between Jerusalem and Washington.
