Netanyahu to visit White House for ‘make up’ summit


WASHINGTON, D.C.: US President Barack Obama will host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on November 9 — their first meeting after a deep row over the Iranian nuclear deal. The fence-mending meeting, announced by the White House on Wednesday, comes as US-Israeli relations are at their lowest point in decades. Obama and Netanyahu — after years of frosty personal relations — clashed over the agreement that would give Iran sanctions relief in return for curbs on its nuclear program. The US administration indicated that the meeting could move beyond tensions caused by Netanyahu’s strident opposition to the deal and focus on getting Israel’s support for its implementation.
