Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not received an invitation to attend US President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20, sources in Netanyahu’s office said on Sunday in response to a media report that Trump wants Netanyahu there., the Jerusalem Post reported.

Netanyahu congratulated Trump on his victory a day after the presidential election, and Trump had invited the Israeli leader to meet in the US at his “first opportunity.”

Last week, Trump spoke out in defense of Israel regarding the recent UN security council resolution condemning settlements and Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Middle East peace. Secretary of State John Kerry gave the most anti-Israel speech ever given by a top U.S. official.

Speaking to press outside of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Trump said that he and Kerry “have different views.” Later on during the conference, the president-elect said that “Israel has been treated very, very unfairly by a lot of different people.” He criticized the UN for its harsh stance on Israel, charging that the body had meanwhile failed to reprimand “horrible places that treat people horribly.”
