Peres to Meet Today with President Obama


President Shimon Peres, who landed on Tuesday for his most recent meeting with US President Barack Obama, will visit the White House today (Wednesday) for a diplomatic work meeting with the President. The meeting will focus on the abduction of the three yeshiva (Torah academy) high school boys and the war Israel is waging against terrorism.

The two are also slated to speak about relations with the Palestinian Authority, efforts to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, intensifications on the Syrian border, and a strengthening of ties between Israel and the US.
