The two leaders will have a bilateral meeting Wednesday, with discussion topics likely to include the need for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict "in the face of deeply troubling trends on the ground," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.
Earnest said the meeting would afford Obama and Netanyahu an opportunity to discuss "the strong ties between the United States and Israel."
The two allies signed a new 10-year agreement last Wednesday in Washington. It calls for the US to provide Israel $38 billion of defense aid, beginning in 2019, the single-largest pledge of military assistance in US history.
