Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will meet with President Barack Obama on Wednesday in New York on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, according to media reports Sunday, which cited U.S. diplomatic officials.

The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed the reports on Sunday night. It will be the first face-to-face encounter between the two leaders since last November, and is expected to be the last one before Obama leaves office in January.

Netanyahu’s office has not published a list of foreign leaders with whom he will be meeting during his four-day stay in New York, unlike in years past when the names were made public before his arrival. He did mention that African leaders are on his appointments schedule, though.
