US President Barack Obama's visit to Israel is not contingent on the formation of a new Israeli government, the White House stated on Friday, according to AFP.

White House spokesman Joshua Earnest said "We're going," when asked if Obama would potentially delay the trip if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition by the March 16 deadline to do so.
