US: Obama peace agenda 'urgent' on Israel visit

JERUSALEM (AP) - The U.S. ambassador to Israel says President Barack Obama will bring an "urgent" peacemaking agenda to Israel on his upcoming visit.

Ambassador Dan Shapiro says talks will focus on Iran, Syria and the need get Israel and the Palestinians back to the negotiating table.

Relations between Israel and the U.S. have been frosty lately, partly because of failed talks with the Palestinians.
