Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will meet US President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday evening, Israel Radio reported overnight Saturday. An official announcement has not yet been made. It remains unknown if the two leaders will conduct a joint press conference. In related news, Obama has cancelled his planned address to some 3,000 Jewish activists from North America at the UJC/The Jewish Federations of North America's annual General Assembly, which was scheduled for Tuesday. The president will instead be attending a memorial ceremony in Fort Hood, Texas, for victims of the shooting at the military base there. Netanyahu, who leaves Israel on Sunday, is due to address the GA on Monday.
