Obama: Don’t want to make grand statements not based on reality

US President Barak Obama said in a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that when it came to the possibility of renewal of peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, he did not want to make grand statements not matching the reality on the ground. He emphasized that he intended to listen first, before he spoke, which his mother taught him was the best way to do things. (Moran Azulay)
