Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara met Monday evening with the comedian and late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien at the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem.
During their meeting, O'Brian fed the Netanyahus' pet dog Kaya, who in the past had bitten several guests.
During his visit in recent days, O'Brian complimented Israel on social media.
O'Brian, who is currently in Israel for the filming of a documentary special for his program, uploaded videos to social media from the flight to Israel and his impressions from Tel Aviv, including a culinary recommendation: "You must try Shakshuka and Goldstar."
Prime Minister Netanyahu referred to O'Brian's visit in a video of his own.
In the video, which was published in his Instagram account and filmed in his office, Netanyahu called O'Brian "the pale, who melts in the sun" and told his aides "Get back to me when Colbert is here" before switching to a more serious tone, saying: "Seriously Conan, we are excited to have you."
