Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama are scheduled to meet on Wednesday in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting, diplomatic officials confirmed Sunday.
According to the officials, the meeting will take place at the hotel where Obama will be staying. Both men will be in the city to address the UN General Assembly. Obama is scheduled to address the gathering on Tuesday, the day Netanyahu leaves for New York, and Netanyahu is set to address the assembly on Thursday.
This will be the first meeting between the two leaders since last November, and is expected to be the last face-to-face meeting between the two before Obama leaves office in January.
The meeting, which will be their 17th, comes just days after the US and Israel signed a 10-year $38 billion military aid package.
