Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to be received at the White House amid concern over his right-wing government’s proposed judicial overhaul.
No signs of White House visit for Israel’s Netanyahu
Eleven weeks into his third stint as Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to be received at the White House, signalling apparent US unhappiness over his right-wing government’s policies.
Most new Israeli leaders had visited the United States or met the president by this point in their premierships, according to a Reuters review of official visits going back to the late 1970s.
Only two of 13 previous prime ministers heading a new government waited longer.
The White House declined to confirm Netanyahu has yet to be invited.
