Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday he did not expect to come under pressure from the United States over the Middle East peace strategy of his right-leaning government.

Netanyahu, who clashed with the Clinton administration while prime minister from 1996 to 1999, has shied away from endorsing the U.S.-backed goal of creating a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, alongside Israel.

U.S. President Barack Obama reaffirmed at a news conference on Tuesday Washington’s commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. >>>
