Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's former top adviser Nir Hefetz signed a state's witness agreement Monday in a high-profile corruption case involving the Israeli leader, officials said.
"Mr. President, this will be remembered by our people through the ages", Netanyahu told Trump at a meeting in the White House, comparing him to past gentile leaders-from Cyrus the Great to President Harry Truman-who have had a major impact on the Jewish people.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has called on Iran to withdraw its military and militia from Syria.
"We are as committed to peace as ever", the official said. Prosecutors say Netanyahu advanced regulatory benefits worth up to 1 billion shekels (approximately $280 million) for Elovitch in exchange for favorable media coverage.
Beyond the brief photo opportunity, neither Trump not Netanyahu planned to speak after meetings expected to focus on potential peace talks with the Palestinians, disputes with Iran, and the civil war in Syria.
The prime minister also described Iran as the biggest challenge facing Israel and the Middle East.

"Iran has not given up its nuclear ambitions", he said. It's practicing aggression everywhere, including on our own borders.
"I think we have a very good chance", Trump said of finding a solution for peace between Israel and Palestine. "And I think we have to stop this country. That is our common challenge", said Netanyahu.
Netanyahu will address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, followed by meetings with members of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. During that time, Walla's coverage notably changed to favor the Netanyahu family, and Bezeq was given permission, among other things, to buy the satellite television provider Yes, overriding antitrust issues, and to renege on its commitment to lease out its infrastructure to telecom competitors, so they could provide competing fixed line and internet services.
The Palestinians, meanwhile, said Trump's decision on Jerusalem renders the United States an unreliable actor in peace talks.
USA officials have told Reuters it would deal with all major issues, including Jerusalem, borders, security and the future of Israeli settlements and Palestinian refugees, and would also urge Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states to provide significant financial support to the Palestinians. "So we're working very hard on it".
The Trump administration has no plans to use Netanyahu's visit to roll out peace proposals Kushner's team is crafting, a second USA official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Kostelitz said today, "I don't represent state's witnesses".
