WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama is meeting with Jewish Democrats in Congress on Tuesday to discuss US-Israeli relations.

The meeting, which the White House announced Monday, came as the US-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians are resuming.

There was diplomatic tension with the United States after Jerusalem construction plans were announced  in the middle of a visit by Vice President Joe Biden.

Obama has faced some skepticism within the Jewish community over the extent of his commitment to Israel.

The US president called the meeting, his first with Jewish Democratic lawmakers together.
