      White House: Obama Doesn't Plan to Pressure Netanyahu


      The White House denied, Thursday evening, reports that President Barack Obama of the United States intends to pressure Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to accept the Kerry outline for final status talks when the two leaders meet on Monday night. The same holds true for Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority when he visits Washington, DC on March 17th.

      Spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that the goal of the visits is to give Obama a close-up look at how the talks are going.
