PM hopes Obama trip will help turn page in Mideast conflict

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed hope on Wednesday night that US President Barack Obama's visit to the region would "help turn a page" in Israel's relations with the Palestinians.
In a joint press conference with Obama following a lengthy meeting, Netanyahu said that with the entry of the new government, "Israel remains fully committed to peace and a solution for two states for two people."
"We extend our hands in peace and friendship to Palestinians... let us put aside all precondition and to work together to achieve a historic compromise and put an end to the conflict," the prime minister said.
