WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama will meet at the White House next month with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
The meeting is set for Dec. 9.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest says Obama looks forward to reviewing with Rivlin security cooperation between the U.S. and Israel. They’ll also review regional developments, efforts to combat extremism as well as advance peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Rivlin has also been invited to attend the annual White House Hanukkah reception that evening.
Rivlin’s visit will follow Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s (neh-ten-YAH’-hoo) meeting with Obama at the White House on Monday.
