The White House has "no grand expectations" for US President Barack Obama's meeting Tuesday with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday. Obama will meet separately with each leader, then hold three-way talks while in New York for meetings of the UN General Assembly. Asked what Obama expects from the talks, Gibbs said the administration is looking to continue making progress toward a resumption of peace talks between the parties. He said "we have no grand expectations" for one meeting. Gibbs commented as Obama flew to upstate New York to give a speech on innovation.
