Pence’s participation was confirmed on Monday morning. Last week, AIPAC announced that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would speak in person at the March 4-6 policy conference in Washington. Also scheduled to speak is Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Pence is the highest ranking Trump administration official to address the conference, which he also addressed last year.
Pence visited Israel in January as part of a five-day visit to the region that included stops in Egypt and Jordan. He spoke in Israel’s Knesset and visited the Western Wall.
