US President Barack Obama on Monday called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on "his party’s success in winning a plurality of Knesset seats."

During the phone call, Obama told Netanyahu he looks forward to working with the new government, and reiterated his commitment to the "deep and enduring bonds" between Israel and the United States.

Obama also pledged to the prime minister to "work closely with Israel" on their shared agenda for peace and security in the Middle East.
