President Obama plans to meet with the new congressional leadership next week, officials told Fox News.

The White House confirmed that Obama has invited the top 16 congressional leaders next Tuesday.

The meeting will be the first since Republicans officially assumed control of Capitol Hill. Obama and leaders from both parties did meet days after the November midterm elections.

The president and GOP leaders have talked about finding areas of agreement on issues like trade and tax reform. However, confrontations await the White House and congressional Republicans on matters including the Keystone XL pipeline and the president's immigration executive orders.
