US Secretary of State John Kerry has said a two-state solution is the "only way" to achieve lasting peace between Israel and Palestinians.
Delivering a farewell speech in Washington, Kerry maintained that President Obama had been "deeply committed" to Israel and its security.
Kerry added that commitment had "guided" Obama's pursuit of peace in the Middle East.
"The two-state solution is the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians," Kerry said.
"It is the only way to ensure Israel's future as a Jewish and democratic state - living in peace and security with its neighbours."
Downing Street said it was "not appropriate" for John Kerry to brand the Netanyahu administration as the "most right wing in history".
The Israeli prime minister said the country would stop funding for a number of UN bodies deemed as 'hostile' to Israel.
