The United States said Wednesday the make-up of Israel's new right-wing coalition raises "legitimate questions" about the government's commitment to a two state solution in the Palestinian Israeli conflict.

In a rare comment on the internal politics of a US ally, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Washington had "seen reports from Israel describing it as the most right-wing coalition in Israel's history."
