Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday during the 2018 Israel Business Conference in Jerusalem that he will fly to Washington to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump in March or earlier.
The two leaders have met three times since Trump’s presidency began in January of last year. The first time was in February of 2017. At a joint press conference at the White House alongside Netanyahu, Trump said: “With this visit, the United States again reaffirms our unbreakable bond with our cherished ally, Israel. The partnership between our two countries built on our shared values has advanced the cause of human freedom, dignity and peace. These are the building blocks of democracy.”
Trump and Netanyahu met again in May during Trump’s first foreign trip. While in Israel for his first time in an official capacity, Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Western Wall.
The third meeting took place in Washington in September. The two met in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly. “I met today with US President Donald Trump,” Netanyahu posted on Facebook at the time. “The alliance between the United States and Israel has never been stronger!”
