Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has arrived at the White House for meetings with President Donald Trump.
Trump's decision previous year to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital pleased Netanyahu's government and the president's attendance at the embassy opening would be a significant gesture.
Trump's decision for the United States to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the embassy there from Tel Aviv reversed decades of USA policy, aggravated Arab allies and has complicated his administration's attempt to revive long-stalled Middle East peace talks.
Trump said the Palestinians want to return to the bargaining table "very badly", adding "we have a shot" at brokering a peace deal.
Trump has threatened to pull out of the agreement unless European allies help "fix" it with a follow-up accord.

Further complicating the situation, Trump's point man, Jared Kushner, has lost his top secret security clearance. Kushner, Trump's point-man for the Mideast, is under intense scrutiny over his business dealings as special counsel Robert Mueller barrels forward with his Russian Federation probe.

Trump and Netanyahu were expected to discuss Iran's growing influence in Syria and the US nuclear deal brokered by former President Obama at Monday's meeting.
Any hopes for a new peace process have dwindled since Trump's recognition of Jerusalem angered the Palestinians.
Netanyahu has also cautioned that Israel could act against Iran itself after an Iranian drone flew into Israel last month and an Israeli warplane was shot down while bombing air defences in Syria. It came out of this nuclear deal emboldened, enriched. Prosecutors say Netanyahu advanced regulatory benefits worth up to 1 billion shekels (approximately $280 million) for Elovitch in exchange for favorable media coverage.
Friday's session with Netanyahu was the eighth time since January 2017 that the right-wing premier had been questioned over a string of corruption allegations that threaten to end his long tenure. His wife, Sara, who was simultaneously questioned at a different location, is also a suspect in one of the investigations. "Is that good?" Trump said. Those interviews were part of an investigation into a corruption case involving the country's telecom giant, and police have recommended indicting Netanyahu on corruption charges in two other cases as well.
