US President Barack Obama will meet with Iraq's new prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi during the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week, both introductory meetings between the American president and the two newly minted leaders.

Egyptian media had published earlier in the week that the White House had declined a meeting between Sisi and Obama.

Upon returning from New York, Obama will also meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the White House on October 1, National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said. Netanyahu will be in the US to address the UN assembly.
