US President Barack Obama will not meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the premier's slated March visit to Washington, the White House announced Thursday.

The Obama administration cited the proximity of Israel's March 17 election as the reason for refraining from the meeting in order to avoid any appearance of influence a foreign vote.
