White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would likely visit president Obama in Washington D.C. in the month of November.

During the White House press briefing today, Earnest revealed to reporters that the two parties were still trying to confirm an exact date for the visit, but that it was going to happen.

“Despite our well known differences on even some key issues, the bond between the United States and Israel when it comes to our security relationship is unshakable,” Earnest said.

He admitted that the two leaders had just been through a period of “vigorous and public disagreement” over the Iran nuclear deal, but that the relationship between the leaders would remain.
