Kerry speech ‘skewed against Israel’: Netanyahu

Jerusalem: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today called a major speech by US Secretary of State John Kerry on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “skewed against Israel”.

“Like the Security Council resolution that Secretary Kerry advanced in the UN, his speech tonight was skewed against Israel,” a statement from Netanyahu’s office said.
