Netanyahu to Visit Germany Next Week

Germany recently abstained from a vote on changing Palestine's status in the U.N.


BERLIN (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and members of his Cabinet will travel to Germany next week — a visit that comes after Berlin abstained in a U.N. vote on recognition of a Palestinian state.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, says the German leader will have dinner with Netanyahu on Wednesday ahead of Thursday's annual meeting of Cabinet members.
