US President Barack Obama will call Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his Likud party’s election win in the coming days, the White House said on Wednesday.

Earnest said the Obama administration does not believe that the Netanyahu victory would have a substantial impact on the nuclear talks with Iran.
