WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is making a personal appeal for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to move forward on peace talks with the Palestinians.

Obama will also try to manage Israel's deep suspicion of a nuclear accord with Iran when the two leaders meet Monday at the White House.

The U.S. and its international partners are in the midst of new talks with Iran aimed at forging a long-term nuclear agreement. And a U.S.-imposed April deadline for completing a framework for peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians is fast approaching with few signs of tangible progress.

While there has been progress on both high-stakes issues, the odds of reaching final agreements on either matter are low.
