Netanyahu plea to meet Obama rejected

Jerusalem, Sept. 11 (Reuters): The White House has rejected a request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet President Barack Obama in the US this month, an Israeli official said today.

An Israeli official told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Netanyahu’s aides had asked for a meeting when he visits the UN this month, and “the White House has got back to us and said it appears a meeting is not possible. It said that the President’s schedule will not permit that”. Netanyahu, who has met Obama on all his US trips since 2009, has been pushing him to adopt a tougher line against Iran.
