Trump Invites Natanyahu to Washington: Premier’s Office

Trump Invites Natanyahu to Washington

The office of the Israeli prime minister released a statement saying US president Donald Trump invites Natanyahu to Washington next month.

The statement further said that the exact date of the meeting is not yet decided and will be fixed within next few days.

The announcement came after the Israeli prime minister and US president held a phone conversation on Saturday. White house confirmed the reports.

Whitehouse said the newly sworn-in president has affirmed his relentless support for Israel.

“The President emphasized that peace between Israel and the Palestinians can only be negotiated directly between the two parties, and that the United States will work closely with Israel to make progress towards that goal. The President invited Prime Minister Netanyahu to an early February meeting at the White House,” said the White house statement.

Natanyahu’s office said Iran’s nuclear deal, the issue of Palestine and other regional issues were discussed in the telephonic contact. The Israeli prime minister has long described the historical nuclear agreement between Iran and P5+1 group of countries as ”a historical mistake”.

Early in the day, Bibi Natanyahu once again reiterated his opposition towards the nuclear deal for the first time after the new US president taking office.

During his election campaigns, the now-US president Trump has repeatedly threatened to annul the popular agreement between Iran and six World powers.
