U.S. President Barack Obama planned to hold his first news conference since November as 10 states hold Republican caucuses and primaries Tuesday.
The news conference in Washington was scheduled for the day after Obama's meeting wiith Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and just two days after the president again vowed not to tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran.
White House press secretary Jay Carney announced the news conference Monday on Twitter.
"President Obama will hold a news conference with the White House press corps tomorrow afternoon," Carney posted.
No time for the news conference was immediately announced.
The session with reporters comes as the Republicans hoping to confront him in November ramped up criticism of his handling of everything from gasoline prices to the accidental burning of Korans in Afghanistan.
Obama's last news conference was held in November in Hawaii following the plenary session of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.
