JERUSALEM – An Israeli official has confirmed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Sunday.
Netanyahu is in the United States, where he met with President Barack Obama and addressed the U.N. General Assembly this week.
Israel is a close ally of the U.S. and presidential candidates often visit to meet with Israeli leaders. However, neither Trump nor Clinton have visited in the current election cycle.
The Israeli official provided no further details on Sunday's meetings. He spoke on condition of anonymity pending an official announcement.
