The White House says President Barack Obama will have no further comment on the mosque near Ground Zero in New York and the administration will not get involved in talks about relocating the controversial facility.

Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton was asked about the issue Tuesday at a White House press briefing.

He replied, "No, and no" to the questions of whether Obama would weigh in further, or whether the White House would have a role in discussions about moving the mosque.

Obama has said that he supports the right of Muslims to build the community center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. He's also said he won't weigh in on the wisdom of building the facility.
