WASHINGTON -- US President Barack Obama "looks forward" to hosting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on November 9, his press secretary said on Wednesday.

The visit will be Netanyahu's first since he addressed Congress last March, warning of dangers in the pending nuclear deal udder the pen with Iran. No Obama administration officials met with Netanyahu during that visit; The Israeli premier has since campaigned against the nuclear deal, which was sealed in July, as an "historic mistake."

Obama and Netanyahu plan to discuss the deal, the White House said, as well as Iran's "destabilizing activities" across the Middle East.

The president also looks forward to discussing "the need for the genuine advancement of a two-state solution" between Israel and the Palestinians, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest added.
