Romney Plans Visit to Israel

By Haaretz

Published July 02, 2012.

This summer, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is planning to do exactly what candidate Barack Obama did in 2008: visit Israel. It will be, of course, inspite of what Obama did as president, visiting both Cairo and Ankara, but stopping short of visiting Jerusalem.

On Monday, the New York Times’ Jodi Rudoren reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s senior advisor Ron Dermer confirmed that the Republican candidate will visit Israel this summer.

Romney is scheduled to meet Netanyahu, as well as other officials, including opposition leaders, as well as a planned meeting with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. The trip, Rudoren reported, will last two days.

News of the former Massachusetts governor’s planned visit come as several publications weighed recently on Romney’s apparent lack of a coherent foreign policy platform - or that his foreign policy advisors being pushed to the margins of the campaign focused on the economy.
