House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said an invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner was "hubris."

"It's out of the ordinary that the Speaker would decide that he would be inviting people to a joint session without any bipartisan consultation," she said at a weekly news conference.

Pelosi said she did not think Netanyahu's visit on March 3 was "appropriate and helpful" two weeks before elections in his own country and amid delicate international talks to curb Iran's nuclear program.
