JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday during a visit by U.S. President Barack Obama that Israel "cannot cede the right to defend ourselves to others", hinting at a possible go-it-alone plan to attack Iran's nuclear programme.

Netanyahu, addressing reporters in Jerusalem, said he hoped Obama's visit "will help us turn a page" toward resolving Israel's conflict with the Palestinians and hoped for a resumption of peace talks stalled since 2010.
