Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to visit Israel this summer for meetings with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other officials, The New York Times reported on Monday, citing a senior Netanyahu aide.

“He’s a strong friend of Israel and we’ll be happy to meet with him,” the Times quoted Ron Dermer as saying. “We value strong bipartisan support for Israel and we’re sure it will only deepen that.”

According to the report, Romney will also meet with President Shimon Peres, US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, members of the opposition and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
