Obama to visit Israel in first visit as president
Tuesday - 2/5/2013, 1:15pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama plans to visit Israel in the spring, marking his first visit to the nation since becoming president.
The White House says Obama spoke about the visit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Jan. 28. That's when Obama congratulated Netanyahu on his success in Israel's recent election.
Obama visited Israel while running for president in 2008, but hasn't been back since, prompting criticism from some pro-Israel groups.
The White House says the start of Obama's second term offers an opportunity to reaffirm Israel's close relationship with the U.S. and to discuss major issues like Syria and Iran.
The White House has not released the date of Obama's trip.
