WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will likely meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in early November, the White House said on Friday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the arrangements for the meeting are still being finalized. He said the planned meeting reflects the commitment of both leaders to maintaining a strong relationship between Israel and the United States.

The future of that relationship is "something worth talking about" and "investing in," Earnest said at a briefing.
