Obama talks to BBC’s Justin Webb


President Barack Obama has said the US can help to get serious Middle East peace negotiations back on track, despite differences with Israel over settlement building in the occupied West Bank.

The president also spoke to the BBC's North America editor Justin Webb about Iran's nuclear programme, saying he wanted to see progress but did not believe in artificial timetables.
