JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the upcoming visit of U.S. President Barack Obama will focus on Iran’s nuclear program, the violence in Syria and the stalled peace process with the Palestinians.

Speaking at a government meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu said he had agreed with Obama on the issues to be discussed.

Obama is expected to visit Israel along with the Palestinian Authority and Jordan next month.

The visit has raised expectations that peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, which collapsed about four years ago, can be resumed.

Netanyahu welcomed Obama’s trip, his first visit to Israel as president.
