The White House has rejected a request by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to meet US President Barack Obama in the United States this month, an official in Jerusalem said on Tuesday, after a row erupted between the allies over Iran's nuclear program.

The official told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Netanyahu's aides had asked for a meeting when he visits the United Nations this month, and "the White House has got back to us and said it appears a meeting is not possible. It said that the president's schedule will not permit that".

Netanyahu has met with Obama on all his US trips since 2009.
