White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Tuesday responded to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's announcement that he will issue an official call in upcoming days for US President Barack Obama to release Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard by saying "I am not aware that that is something that the president is looking at doing."

Netanyahu's announcement answers the request made by Pollard himself through a message delivered by his wife Esther.
