What did Hillary Clinton say in Qatar?

According to Palestine Press Agency, Hillary Clinton yesterday said that the US is committed to a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, at the US-Islamic World Forum in Doha.

Not quite:
We support a two-state solution, with Israelis and Palestinians co-existing peacefully and with mutual security. We believe that through good-faith negotiations, the parties can mutually agree on an outcome which ends the conflict and reconciles the Palestinian goal of an independent and viable state based on the 1967 lines, with agreed swaps, and the Israeli goal of a Jewish state with secure and recognized borders that reflect subsequent developments and meet Israeli security requirements.
She said a couple of things that are problematic, but she did not announce any change in US policy.
