WASHINGTON - US House Speaker John Boehner will invite Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to address a joint meeting of the US Congress during a visit to Washington next month, Boehner's office announced on Thursday.

Boehner will extend the formal invitation once Congress approves a resolution providing for the joint session, Boehner's office said in a statement.

Netanyahu was widely expected to deliver a new diplomatic initiative during the visit, with sources close to the prime minister floating the idea that a major speech would be given in front of the US Congress. The move would come ahead of a Palestinian initiative scheduled for September, when they will ask the United Nations to recognize its statehood within pre-1967 borders.
