Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on his way to the United States where he is slated to meet with President Barack Obama at the White House about the Middle East, the Palestinian Authority and Israeli security.
“My conversation with the president will center on recent events in the Middle East, including in Syria, possible progress with the Palestinians, or at least stabilizing the situation with them, and, of course, strengthening the security of the State of Israel, which the U.S. has always been committed to, while maintaining the State of Israel’s comparative advantage in the face of a changing Middle East and a cycle that changes less.
“I believe that this meeting is important in order to clarify the continuation of American aid to Israel in the coming decade. It will be another step toward realizing an understanding in this direction.
“I will also meet with U.S. Jewish communities at their annual conference, and with many other American public figures,” the prime minister added.
Netanyahu is scheduled to address the General Assembly of the Jewish Federation of North America (JFNA); the conference, scheduled to start Sunday (Nov. 8), lasts until Tuesday (Nov. 10).
