Good morning,

President Obama leaves later this afternoon for the UN General Assembly, and the WH has added two bilats to his schedule.

From Press Secretary Josh Earnest:

In addition to the previously announced bilateral engagements on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York City, President Obama will have a pull-aside with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Monday, September 19. The two leaders will discuss steps to deepen the U.S.-China relationship, while addressing issues of bilateral and regional concern, including North Korea's provocations.

On Wednesday, September 21--also on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York City--President Obama will take part in a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The meeting between the President and Prime Minister will afford them an opportunity to discuss the strong ties between the United States and Israel, as recently underscored by the finalization of a new 10-year Memorandum of Understanding with Israel, the single largest pledge of military assistance in U.S. history. The meeting also will be an opportunity to discuss the need for genuine advancement of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the face of deeply troubling trends on the ground. Additionally, the leaders are likely to discuss continued implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and other regional security issues.
