Clinton: US to work with any Israeli government

US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the US will work closely with any new Israeli government.

Clinton is in Jerusalem on her first Mideast visit as the top US diplomat. Her first statements came after a meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres today.

Clinton says the US will work with any government that "represents the democratic will of the people of Israel."

Hard-line Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu is currently forming a new government and is expected to be sworn in as the country's next prime minister within weeks.

Clinton is set to meet Netanyahu later in the day.
