( Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House and deliver a speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference in Washington, DC, during his five-day U.S. visit in the first week of March.

According to the Prime Minister’s Office, the date of the meeting with Obama has yet to be set, but the details are expected to be finalized soon. Netanyahu and Obama last met in September 2013, when Netanyahu traveled to the U.S. for the United Nations General Assembly.

An Israeli political official on Sunday said “no surprises are expected,” with the meeting between Netanyahu and Obama likely to focus on the Iran nuclear program issue and the U.S.-brokered Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations, Israel Hayom reported.

“The leaders will coordinate their positions during a private discussion,” the official said.
