Israeli President Shimon Peres is visiting Washington.

Peres will be in Washington next week, the Israeli embassy said in a release Thursday, and arrangements for meetings with “government leaders” are underway.

Israeli media have reported that Peres will meet with President Obama and present the outlines of a peace plan Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to unveil in May, when he addresses the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy forum.

The White House had no comment.

Peres’ only firm date so far is a dinner Tuesday night hosted by the Center for Middle East Peace, a think tank with close Obama administration ties.
