Obama and Ne­tanyahu to meet in New York

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Pres­i­dent Barack Obama will meet with Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu in New York on the side­lines of the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly, the White House said. The two lead­ers will have a bi­lat­eral meet­ing to­mor­row, with top­ics likely to in­clude the need for a two-state so­lu­tion to the Is­raeli-Pales­tinian con­flict. The two al­lies signed a new 10-year agree­ment last week which calls for Wash­ing­ton to pro­vide Is­rael US$38 bil­lion of de­fence aid, be­gin­ning in 2019, the sin­gle-largest pledge of mil­i­tary as­sis­tance in US his­tory.
