US President Barack Obama called new Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday and congratulated him on his inauguration to the premiership. Obama, currently on his first overseas trip as president, phoned Netanyahu in the early morning hours Wednesday, and congratulated him on his first day in office. Obama, according to Netanyahu's office, made clear that US support for Israel's security was unwavering, and wished him well. The conversation lasted close to 30 minutes, and was held in a "friendly" atmosphere. The two agreed to meet in the near future, though no date was given.
