Netanyahu to Ban: Refused recognition of Jewish state is root of conflict

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and discussed the prolonged Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"The real issue is how to get a demilitarized Palestinian state to finally recognize and accept the one and only Jewish State," said the premier.
