The New York Post reported US President-elect Donald Trump's advisers invited Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to the inauguration ceremony on January 20.

On Sunday, the Trump transition team, led by Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, contacted Netanyahu regarding Netanyahu's participation in the ceremony.

"There’s a plan for Trump to meet with Netanyahu. They’re talking all the time. And Netanyahu is talking about possibly going to the inauguration," a source close to Trump said.

Immediately after the US elections, Netanyahu called Trump to congratulate him. Immediately following the elections, Trump invited Netanyahu to visit the US "at the earliest possible opportunity."

Trump has continuously emphasized that Israel is "very important" to him, and has also promised to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
