Netanyahu says he complained to Obama about Abbas

Netanyahu also complained to US President Barack Obama about Abbas’s incitement during a spontaneous 10-minute conversation they held in a conference hallway, he says.

“I told him that a central aspect of terror is incitement,” the prime minister states. “President Obama told me that he intends to talk with Abbas about this issue and that he agrees with me that this has to end.”

Netanyahu describes his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin as very broad and deep.

“Our conversation went into significant detail,” he says, adding that Putin updated him on the Russian jet that was shot down last week by Turkey over that country’s border with Syria.
