White House spokesman: Netanyahu comments ‘raise questions’

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says Netanyahu’s comments Monday ruling out Palestinian statehood “raise questions about his commitment” to a two-state solution. Earnest says the White House will re-evaluate its approach to the peace process.

He speaks about two hours after MSNBC airs an interview with Netanyahu where he clarifies his comments, saying that he is still committed to the two-state solution, but that PA President Abbas has not shown any flexibility regarding recognition of Israel as a Jewish state.
