Biden says Israel must back two-state peace deal

Vice President Joe Biden is calling on Israel to back a two-state peace agreement with the Palestinians and urging the Jewish state's new leadership to demonstrate its commitment to such a solution.
In a speech to the leading pro-Israel lobby in the United States, Biden said Tuesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government should stop constructing new Jewish settlements and ease restrictions on Palestinians. He also says the U.S. would never abandon its commitment to Israel's security, calling it "nonnegotiable."
Biden's comments came ahead of a meeting later Tuesday between President Barack Obama and Israeli President Shimon Peres as well as a visit to Washington this month by Netanyahu.
