US President Barack Obama will meet Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House this month to discuss Iran’s nuclear programme.

The meeting, which will take place in Washington on September 30, is expected to address Iran’s uranium fields, the ongoing crisis in Syria and two-state solution peace talks with the Palestinian Authority.

The Israeli prime minister is expected to speak at the United Nations’ assembly in New York the next day, according to a report on Reuters.

The two leaders last met in March during the US President’s honorary visit to Israel.
