Netanyahu sets meeting with bipartisan leaders of U.S. Senate

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with the Republican and Democratic leaders of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday after he addresses the U.S. Congress, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday. The meeting at the U.S. Capitol among Netanyahu, McConnell and Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid comes as Democrats have accused Republicans of seeking to make the U.S.-Israeli relationship a partisan issue.
