WASHINGTON, May 22 (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged on Sunday to work alongside U.S. President Barak Obama for a way to renew frozen peace talks with the Palestinians.

"I am a partner to President Obama's wish to promote peace and I appreciate his efforts in the past and present to achieve this goal. I am determined to work with Presdient Obama to find ways to renew peace talks."
