US presidential candidate Mitt Romney canceled his planned meeting with Labor party head Shelly Yechimovich on Sunday.

Labor MK Isaac Herzog, who was meant to participate in the meeting as well, expressed regret at the meetings "surprising last-minute cancellation," saying he suspected the decision was politically motivated.

Asked whether the Americans were aware that a meeting with Yechimovich was no longer required by diplomatic protocol, an Israeli official involved in planning Romney's visit said he was not sure, but that the cancellation took him by surprise.
