Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — who met with US President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday — might return to Washington, DC next month for the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Hebrew news site nrg reported on Thursday.

It is also possible, the report said, that Trump will speak at the gathering — which will take place March 26-28 at the Washington Convention Center. Final decisions regarding the attendance of both leaders will be made closer to the start of the conference, according to nrg.

Netanyahu did not take part in last year’s AIPAC conference, as he did not want to become entangled in the presidential election campaign. Trump — then a candidate in the Republican primaries — did address the conference.
