Relations between Israel and the US have shifted since Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama took office earlier this year, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gabriela Shalev said Tuesday. Speaking to reporters in New York, she added that the two governments were working towards "a two-state solution," despite disagreements on the settlements issue. "We are willing to recognize a two-state solution," she stressed. "While we recognize the Arab state, they must recognize our rights - the Jewish nation - to live in our state. It means both should recognize each other." "There is a change that everybody can feel," she said. "We have now a government that is leaning toward the Right . . . and on the other hand we have here in the United States a very different government than what we had during the time of the Bush administration."
