Netanyahu To Visit Washington, Address AIPAC Conference In March


Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will visit Washington, DC next month to address the annual gathering of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

The 2016 AIPAC Policy Conference is scheduled for March 20-22. As of now, no meeting has been scheduled between Netanyahu and President Barack Obama during the former’s visit.

A week and a half before Netanyahu travels to Washington, Vice President Joe Biden will visit Israel, where he will meet with the prime minister. Last month, Biden met with Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Netanyahu last met with Obama during a trip to Washington in November 2015. Among other issues, the leaders discussed a new 10-year memorandum of understanding on U.S. security assistance to Israel. The current memorandum of understanding is set to expire in 2017.
