Netanyahu meets US representative who skipped his Iran address to Congress

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with a six-member bipartisan US Congressional delegation on Monday, including Rep. Karen Bass (D-California) who was among 58 members of Congress who skipped his controversial speech to Congress in March.

One government official said that while the speech in Congress did come up during the meeting, the main focus was on the Iranian nuclear negotiations. Netanyahu is continuing to be outspoken in his opposition to the Iran deal.

Explaining her decision to skip the Netanyahu address, Bass issued a statement prior to the March address saying that she is a strong supporter of the US Israeli relationship, and wants it to remain a bipartisan issue.
