JERUSALEM, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- The United States is trying to get Israel's prime minister and Egypt's president to meet at next month's U.N. General Assembly meeting, officials said.
The White House may already have begun "rolling" the idea of a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi in New York among Israeli officials, the Hebrew language daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported Wednesday.
"It entirely depends on Morsi and no one else. It is obvious Netanyahu won't object to such a meeting," the paper said quoting an Israeli official anonymously.
Morsi is expected to attend the opening ceremony of the U.N. General Assembly and later meet with President Barack Obama. Netanyahu was scheduled to leave for the United States after the Yom Kippur fast Sept. 26 but may cancel the trip if a bilateral meeting with Obama cannot be arranged, the paper said.
