CBS Transcript:

"SCHIEFFER: How do you describe your relationship with the president?

NETANYAHU: Actually it is quite good. I have to tell you we had a conversation -- I don't want to say like an old married couple, but the president said that we had -- he has had more meetings with me that with any other foreign leader.

I think you get to a point of mutual respect, you cut to the chase very quickly. You talk about the real things openly, as befitting real allies. I think we have a relationship of mutual respect and mutual appreciation."
