Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit the White House on Nov. 9, the White House announced Wednesday.

"The president looks forward to discussing with the Prime Minister regional security issues, including implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to peacefully and verifiably prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, and countering Tehran's destabilizing activities," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement.

President Barack Obama and the prime minister are known to have a somewhat icy relationship and disagree on a number of issues, chiefly the Iran nuclear agreement. Obama notably did not meet with Netanyahu when the prime minister visited the United States in March to address Congress and warn about the dangers of the deal.

"The president also looks forward to discussing Israel's relations with the Palestinians, the situation in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank and the need for the genuine advancement of a two-state solution," the White House statement said. "Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit is a demonstration of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel as well as the unprecedented security cooperation, including our close consultations to further enhance Israel's security."
