WASHINGTON, Nov 14 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on
Sunday praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for
trying to win approval from his coalition government for a U.S.
proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building.
I commend Prime Minister Netanyahu for taking, I think, a
very constructive step, Obama told reporters upon arriving in
the United States after a trip to Asia.
It's not easy for him to do but I think it's a signal that
he is serious.
