Dermer informed White House of change in Netanyahu’s plans

WASHINGTON — Israel’s ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer informed the White House that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was likely to cancel his planned visit to Washington next week, the premier’s office said on Monday night, responding to accusations from the Obama administration that it was caught off guard by news of his change in plans.

Earlier on Monday, White House officials said Obama had already penciled in a meeting with Netanyahu on March 18. They expressed disappointment in his decision to cancel the meeting, and referred The Jerusalem Post to the government of Israel for an explanation of the schedule change.
