Bibi To Address Congress on May 24

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint meeting of the U.S. Congress on May 24, House Speaker John Boehner announced.

While the invitation from Boehner (R-Ohio) to Netanyahu has been widely publicized, it was the first time a date was given.

“America and Israel are the closest of friends and allies, and we look forward to hearing the Prime Minister’s views on how we can continue working together for peace, freedom, and stability,” a statement from Boehner’s office said.

Netanyahu will be in Washington to speak at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference May 21. He is scheduled to meet the day before with President Obama at the White House.

The Israeli leader’s speech to Congress is expected to outline his plans for peace with the Palestinians.
