US President Barack Obama has said that a previous UN conference on racism where hostility towards Israel had been expressed is the reason why his administration was boycotting the UN conference on racism in Geneva.

Speaking to journalists in Port-of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Mr Obama said a 'clean start' was required if the US was to participate.
