ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday (November 9) affirmed his commitment to a two state solution with Palestinians to achieve Middle East peace during a meeting with President Barack Obama in which the two leaders sought to smooth over differences on Iran. "I want to make it clear that we have not given up our hope for peace. We'll never give up our hope for peace. And I remain committed to a vision of peace of two states for two peoples, a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state," said Netanyahu. Obama, who hosted Netanyahu in the Oval Office, said he looked forward to hearing from the prime minister his thoughts on how to reduce the violence with Palestinians and reiterated his position that Israel had the right to defend itself. The two men shook hands twice. Obama said they would discuss implementation of the Iran nuclear deal, which Netanyahu opposed.
