Netanyahu says Israel still committed to peace deal

Dec. 5, 2012 4:20 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 5, 2012 4:20 P.M.)
PRAGUE (Reuters) -- Israel remains committed to a negotiated settlement with the Palestinians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday, despite worries among Israel's European allies over its plans to build more settlements.

"We remain committed to a negotiated settlement between us and our Palestinian neighbors," Netanyahu said during a visit to Prague. "That solution is a two-state solution for two peoples, a peace in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognize the one and only Jewish state of Israel."

Netanyahu's comments came ahead of a visit to Germany, where he was expected to face a dressing down from Chancellor Angela Merkel for the settlement plans that his government is pursuing following a vote in the United Nations last week granting the Palestinian Authority limited statehood status.
