Netanyahu Tells Obama 1967 Borders ‘Indefensible’
WASHINGTON – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told President Barack Obama he’s willing to make some compromises to achieve peace in his nation, but that returning to Israel’s 1967 borders is not an option.
Netanyahu met with Obama in Washington, D.C., Friday, on the heels of the president’s public call to return Israel to the borders the state held before the 1967 Six Day War, as a concession for peace with the Palestinians.
Though the leaders assured their relationship remains “friendly,” there was still clear tension in the room as they discussed American policy on Israel.
“While Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines, because these lines are indefensible,” Netanyahu told Obama in front of the press.
