Obama Won't Present New Peace Initiative During Israel Trip

President Barack Obama’s upcoming visit to Israel is not meant at presenting a new proposal for peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, the White House clarified on Wednesday.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that the timing of the visit is intended to coincide with the beginning of the second terms in office of both Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
