NEW YORK – Ahead of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s visit to the United States, prominent North American Jewish leaders on Monday expressed the hope that his meeting with President Barack Obama will reinvigorate bilateral relations.

“It is always a pleasure to welcome the prime minister when he comes to the United States,” Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations chairman Alan Solow said. “We look forward to a report from him on his meetings with President Obama, which of course we hope will further strengthen the US-Israel relationship.”

After talks with Obama in Washington on Tuesday, Netanyahu is scheduled to visit New York on Wednesday and Thursday, where he will meet with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former US president Bill Clinton, and then debrief the Conference of Presidents on his talks with Obama.

“We also look forward to hearing from him regarding the variety of challenges that face Israel and the plans his government has to meet them,” Solow said. “I am confident that he will receive a warm welcome from American Jewish leadership.”
