Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to meet US President Donald Trump today. The meeting will take place in the White House and will mark the fifth time the two have met since Trump took office.

Netanyahu landed in Washington on Sunday. While the Prime Minister’s primary focus was to speak at AIPAC’s annual policy conference, the White House invited him to meet with Trump. The two world leaders share a close personal friendship, and Netanyahu has called Trump “a great friend to Israel and to me personally.”

In their meeting, Netanyahu and Trump will discuss Iran’s nuclear program, the Syrian civil war and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Aside from meeting with Trump and speaking at the AIPAC event, Netanyahu is planning to meet with other world leaders. Last night, he met with Guatemala’s President Jimmy Morales, who announced that Guatemala would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May.
