Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama in early November, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said on Friday.

Netanyahu is expected to arrive in Washington on November 8 to attend the Jewish Federations of North America's annual conference. Netanyahu is expected to visit the White House as part of his trip.

On Thursday, Obama told rabbis in a pre-Rosh Hashanah phone call that security talks with Israel had resumed and he hoped to meet with Israeli Netanyahu by early next month, during the United Nations’ General Assembly opening session. Netanyahu until now has rebuffed such overtures because of his disagreement with the U.S. leader over the Iran nuclear deal.

The phone call was made on the same day a Republican-backed measure to derail the Iran nuclear agreement was blocked in the U.S. Senate, in a major foreign policy victory for Obama.
