U.S. President Barack Obama welcomed the imminent start of renewed peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians on Monday, but urged both sides to approach them with honesty, AFP reported Monday evening.
"The most difficult work of these negotiations is ahead, and I am hopeful that both the Israelis and Palestinians will approach these talks in good faith," he said.
Obama thanked his own top diplomat, Secretary of State John Kerry, for organizing the talks, which were to begin later Monday in Washington with an initial exchange between top negotiators.
"I am pleased that Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu and [Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud] Abbas have accepted Secretary Kerry's invitation to formally resume direct final status negotiations and have sent senior negotiating teams to Washington for the first round of meetings," Obama said.
"This is a promising step forward, though hard work and hard choices remain ahead. The United States stands ready to support them throughout these negotiations, with the goal of achieving two states, living side by side in peace and security."

Honest Abe Obama has said it again ping.
Honesty? How about admitting that at the least you are a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer? Or are you a member?
Honesty, Obama?! You don’t know what that word means.
What would Barry know about “honesty”? He’s a Chicago politician.
Oh, how I wish we could tell him to JUST SHADDUP!
“Honesty” lessons from the expert
OK, here we go:
Honest Palastinian: “We will only settle for the total eradicatin of all Jews from our Holy Land. That is where we start and finish this negotiation.
Honest Israeli: Did you know that we have a huge stockpile of nuclear weapons? That is where we finish this negotiation.
Obama wouldn’t know honesty if it walked up and beat him like a drum!
Zer0, there you go again! Just more pipe dreams from the fantasy world of the Unicorn Farm.
The word COMPROMISE simply does not exist in the Arab/Persian Muslim mentality - therefore, only the Israelis can COMPROMISE and only the Israelis can concede something quid pro quo that will NOT COME from the PLO side so, how naive can you be?
Bibi needs to pimp slap him again in public like he did before.
“Obama Urges Honesty”?
ReallY, odumbo actually said that?
He is the last person to talk about “honesty”.
satan urges honesty... HONEST!
