President Barack Obama says tough decisions will have to be made as the deadline nears for completing a framework for peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Obama is speaking in a meeting at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He says it's still possible to create two states — one for Israelis and one for Palestinians. But Obama says it's difficult and requires compromises on all sides. He says he'll do, in his words, "whatever I must do to defend the Jewish state."
