What were Bibi and Barack talking about?

The unexpectedly long Obama-Netanyahu meeting in Jerusalem this afternoon dealt with “regional strategic issues,” Channel 2 diplomatic correspondent Udi Segal says.

That meant primarily a discussion of Israeli security demands in a future agreement with the Palestinians, he says, such as Israel’s demand for a security presence in the Jordan Valley after any withdrawal.

The signs are that the US is planning a significant push toward a resumption of negotiations in the near future, and that this visit, now approaching its end, was undertaken with that goal in mind.
