President Obama will meet with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu for a high stakes meeting at the White House today (Monday). The meeting between the two leaders is expected to focus on the future stability of the middle east, especially developments in Iran and Syria.
The Prime Minister arrived in the United States Sunday for a visit to the United Nations ahead of his trip to the White House. The meeting comes on the heels of President Obama's historic phone conversation with Iran's new president.
The Israeli Prime Minister is bringing the message that the U.S. can't afford to ease up the pressure on Iran, despite an apparent thaw in relations with the Islamic republic.
