Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in Washington for talks with the Obama administration.

Mr. Netanyahu’s arrival Monday coincides with a difficult period in U.S.-Israel relations, aggravated by Israel’s announcement of plans for new Jewish homes in east Jerusalem, which the Palestinians want as the capital of a future state.

The prime minister will meet with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday afternoon, then have dinner with Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Monday evening. He also will give a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel group.
