Jerusalem, Feb 10 IANS | 9 months ago

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet US President Barack Obama in Washington next month, the prime minister's office confirmed Sunday.


Netanyahu's trip to the Us will include a speech in front of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro- Israeli lobby, and a meeting with Obama at the White House which will mainly focus on the peace talks with the Palestinians, Xinhua reported.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has been working in the past months toward a framework agreement that outlines the future advancement of the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

The last meeting of the two allies was held in the US last September which focused on the issue of the Iranian nuclear programme amid Iran's overtures toward the West at the time.

There are mounting tensions between Israel and the US due to some Israeli far-rightists' criticism about Kerry's work and their negation of the peace talks as a whole, as well as the two's disagreement over how to tackle the Iranian nuclear issue.
