United States President Joe Biden will host his Israeli counterpart Reuven Rivlin at the White House on June 28. 

Jen Psaki, White House spokesperson, said that Rivlin's visit will showcase the enduring partnership between Israel and the United States and the deep ties between the governments and the people.

Rivlin will visit before his seven-year term ends in July. 

Psaki further said, "This visit will honour the dedication President Rivlin has shown to strengthening the friendship between the two countries over many years."

Isaac Herzog is the country's new president. He was elected this month in elections that ended the era of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel. 

The role of the president in the country is largely nominal and ceremonial but is meant to promote unity amongst ethnic and religious groups.
