Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with the Republican and Democratic leaders of the US Senate on Tuesday after he addresses the US Congress, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday.

The meeting at the US Capitol among Netanyahu, McConnell and Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid comes as Democrats have accused Republicans of seeking to make the US-Israeli relationship a partisan issue. Republicans invited Netanyahu to speak to lawmakers without consulting Democrats.
