Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to visit President Obama at the White House next month, the Associated Press reports. The two will meet on March 3 to discuss the Mideast peace process as well as Iran’s nuclear program. It should be interesting: Netanyahu has recently criticized the United States’ efforts to limit Iran’s nuclear program, and various Israeli politicians have been critical of Secretary of State John Kerry’s attempts to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

The White House said in a statement that Netanyahu’s visit “is a demonstration of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel and our close consultations on a range of security issues.” This will be the first meeting between the two leaders since they met in Washington, D.C. in September 2013.

In addition to his meeting at the White House, Netanyahu will make an address at the annual AIPAC Policy Conference during his visit to the U.S. capital. Then he’ll continue on to Los Angeles and to Silicon Valley for meetings with Israeli business partners, marking the first time in many years that an Israeli premier has visited the West Coast.
