WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will draw a contrast with US President Barack Obama on Middle East policy on Wednesday and promise to bolster US ties with Israel if elected next year.

In remarks to Jewish Republicans, Romney will promise to make a visit to Israel his first foreign trip if he becomes the Republican presidential nominee and goes on to oust Obama from the White House in next November's election.

Republicans have complained that the Democrat Obama has favored the Palestinians over traditional US ally Israel in the long-running Middle East dispute.
