Obama and Netanyahu set for tense talks

Israel may increase pressure on US to support a military strike on Iran before influential AIPAC conference.

    The uneasy relationship between Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu will be tested again on Monday when the Israeli prime minister visits the White House.

    The two leaders have disagreed in the past, and this time Netanyahu may try to pressure Obama into supporting a potential military strike on Iran before a meeting with the influential Israeli lobby group in the US, AIPAC.
