AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — President Barack Obama says he'll "keep on plugging away" in hopes of getting the Israelis and Palestinians to reach a peace agreement.

Obama says the window of opportunity for such a deal still exists, but he says it's getting more and more difficult with each passing day.

The president says mistrust between the two sides is building instead of ebbing.
