Trump and Netanyahu to discuss Palestinians and Iran by phone

January 22, 2017 17:41

WASHINGTON -- US President Donald Trump will discuss Iran and Middle East peace with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call on Sunday, according to one of his counselors.

Kellyanne Conway offered no preview of the phone call, except that the call will take place some time during the day.

Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, said on Thursday that the new administration was planning an announcement "soon" on its plans for America's embassy in Israel. The president has for months suggested he intends to move the facility from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem– a move that would elate many Israelis and enrage Palestinians.

Netanyahu plans on visiting Trump at the White House in the coming weeks.
