In a statement issued by Ryan, the Republican leader said the two spoke about "the need to hold Iran accountable for its actions, bolster Israel's qualitative military edge, and push back against international efforts to delegitimize the Jewish state."

"Prime Minister Netanyahu and I redoubled our commitment to strengthening the historic alliance between the United States and Israel," Ryan added.

In addition to meeting with Ryan, Netanyahu also had sit down discussions with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Netanyahu also met with members of the Senate foreign relations committee, including Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ) and Bob Corker (R-TN).
