Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's wife, Sara, spoke Wednesday night on the phone with Melania Trump to congratulate her on her husband's inauguration.

The two women agreed to meet as soon as possible.

On Sunday, US President Donald Trump and Netanyahu spoke on the phone in a conversation Trump characterized as "very nice."

The conversation lasted less than 30-minutes.

Trump invited Netanyahu to come to Washington and meet him in February. According to the Prime Minister's Office, the exact date of the meeting will be determined in the coming days.

The two leaders discussed the Iran nuclear agreement, the process with the Palestinians and other subjects.

Another topic that was expected to have been discussed between the two leaders was moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Just prior to the conversation, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the administration has begun deliberations over whether to move the embassy.
