British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Israel's premier Benjamin Netanyahu sparred over the issue of settlements Wednesday as he visited for talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.In brief comments as he met Netanyahu in occupied Jerusalem, Johnson touched on Israeli settlement building in Palestinian territory and stressed his government remained committed to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Trump backed away from the U.S. commitment to a two-state solution when he met Netanyahu at the White House in February, saying he would be open to a single state if it led to peace.Israeli settler leaders had called for Johnson to meet with them as well, but the official said the brief visit allowed no time to do so.A statement from Rivlin's office said the president asked Johnson to extend an invitation to the royal family for a possible first-ever official visit to Israel.
