TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - President Barack Obama is opening his first trip to Israel since taking office.
Air Force One touched down in Tel Aviv early Wednesday afternoon after an overnight flight from Washington. After an arrival ceremony at the airport, Obama will head to Jerusalem for meetings with Israeli leaders.
The president will also make stops in the West Bank and Jordan while in the Middle East. Obama's agenda will focus on the prospects for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, Iran's disputed nuclear program, and the ongoing violence in Syria.
However, White House officials have downplayed the prospects for major breakthroughs on any of those issues.
