Several senior administration officials offered a brief readout of the president's meeting with the Israeli PM. The two leaders discussed with concern the recent spike in violence between Israelis and Palestinians and Obama's concern over the continuing Israeli settlement activity.

"There was also a discussion about Israeli Palestinian relations and some of the challenges posed in particular by the violence that is ongoing, the recent spike in violence... The continuance of the settlement activity as it enters the 15th year of occupation...
A senior administration official said in terms of settlements Mr. Obama raised "profound U.S. concerns about the corrosive effect that that is having on the prospects of two states," which Mr. Netanyahu pushed back on.
"They've never papered over their differences," another senior administration official said.
