US National Security Adviser Susan Rice and UN Ambassador Samantha Power will attend a meeting of the powerful pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC next week amid a time of strain between the United States and Israel.

A White House spokeswoman confirmed Rice and Power would attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committee meeting.

Rice said in a television interview this week that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plans to address Congress next week about a potential nuclear deal with Iran that he opposes was destructive to the fabric of the US-Israeli relationship.
