President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet early next month.

A meeting was expected, as Netanyahu is set to be in Washington to address the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on March 5.

In a statement Monday, the White House said the two leaders would meet the same day.

The statement came after Tom Donilon, Obama’s national security adviser, concluded a three-day visit to Israel in which he met with Netanyahu as well as Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, the military chief of staff.

The meetings, the statement said, “addressed the full range of security issues of mutual concern.”

Meetings between top U.S. and Israeli officials have been more frequent in recent months as tensions between Israel and Iran have intensified.
