Washington Free Beacon: The White House disputed reports administration officials rejected a meeting between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later this month in New York City.
The Israeli paper Haaretz first reported Tuesday that the White House had declined to meet with Netanyahu. CNN reported later that Israeli sources says the White House rejected a meeting, even when Netanyahu offered to travel to Washington D.C., after his time in New York.
In response, the White House said scheduling conflicts prevent the meeting.
Netanyahu is pushing for the administration to take a more confrontational stance on Iran, declaring Tuesday that Israel will not wait for the Obama administration to approve military action against Iran.
