White House, PMO, deny report of Obama invitation to Netanyahu

Both the White House and the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denied on Tuesday morning a report in the Israeli media that US President Barack Obama invited Netanyahu for talks in Washington in July. 

Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth quoted unidentified sources at the State Department as saying Obama had invited Netanyahu for talks in mid-July, after a June 30 deadline for a major powers deal with Iran on its nuclear program.

Netanyahu has criticized the emerging deal Israel fears will allow Iran the means of making a bomb, while also granting it sanctions relief that could help bankroll its guerrilla allies in the region.
