Republican Party presidential nominee Mitt Romney will meet Israeli leaders later today after arriving in Tel Aviv last night.
His pro-Israel stance is likely to ensure a warm welcome from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and he is expected to strengthen the links between the US and Israel if elected as president.
The visit is the latest part of a three-nation trip that includes Britain and Poland.
