WASHINGTON - The White House chief of staff emphasized the United States' enduring commitment to a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict on Monday and said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's comments disavowing that strategy cannot be ignored.

"We cannot simply pretend that these comments were never made," Denis McDonough, one of US President Barack Obama's top advisers, said at the annual J Street conference. 

He said the United States has expended much energy on diplomatic efforts promoting a two-state solution and that was why the Israeli leader's comments last week "were so very troubling."
