Netanyahu to New York to meet with Obama, Ban and the UN

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to leave Tuesday afternoon for a five-day trip to New York, where he will meet with US President Barack Obama on Wednesday, address the General Assembly on Thursday and meet that same day with outgoing UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The meeting with Obama, expected to be their last face-to-face meeting before the president leaves office on January 20, is scheduled for Wednesday evening in Obama’s Manhattan hotel. It is expected to deal with a wide range of issues, from implementation of the Iran nuclear deal, to the situation in Syria, and the diplomatic process with the Palestinians.
