Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will reportedly address the liberal think tank Center for American Progress during his upcoming visit to Washington, D.C.

Netanyahu will address the self-described independent nonpartisan policy institute dedicated to promoting progressive ideas on November 10, according to a Jewish Insider report.

Netanyahu will reportedly discuss Iran, the U.S.-Israel relationship, Israeli-Palestinian relations and the Middle East during the event at the Center for American Progress's Washington headquarters.

The think tank endorsed the Iran nuclear deal, calling it "a historic achievement."

Netanyahu is expected to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House the day before his address to the Center for American Progress. Netanyahu will additionally address the annual Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly and will receive an award from the conservative American Enterprise Institute during his time in Washington.
