WASHINGTON--The White House on Wednesday confirmed that President Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, in Jerusalem, invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House next week. Emanuel issued the invitation during a meeting with Netanyahu.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday. Netanyahu will travel to Washington from Canada. U.S. Special envoy George Mitchell was in the region earlier this month shuttling between Israelis and Palestinians for "indirect" peace talks.

Emanuel flew to Israel for the bar mitzvah of his son.
