Kushner Visit to Middle East to Bringing Peace between Israel and Palestine

"President Trump has made it clear that it is a top priority for him to work toward achieving a comprehensive and lasting peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians", a United States official said.

Judging by the statements made after the meeting by both sides, it was had been more successful than their June meeting, which a USA source described as "tense" and "disappointing". Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also struck a positive tone in public comments a day earlier, after meeting in Ramallah with Kushner, Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt and deputy national security adviser Dina Powell.

"The Palestinian Authority and the US delegation had a productive meeting focused on how to begin substantive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks".

"We know that things are hard and complicated, but there is nothing impossible with these good efforts". In January, U.S President Donald Trump pledged to urge Israelis and Palestinians for a peace deal.

But the US delegation refrained from committing to a two-state solution - the primary focus of peace efforts for decades.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will hold talks in Ankara on August 28 amid calls for the resumption of negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis to end the conflict.

"There hasn't been any".

Aloul criticized Kushner's delegation, stating, "Judging from the latest meetings, the delegates didn't bring anything new with them and didn't present any initiative".

"We have told the Americans that we are committed to the American effort", Khatib said.

USA officials have said that they have not ruled out a two-state solution but that it is up to the two sides, not them, to agree on a way forward.

Netanyahu said such a deal was "within our reach" and promised to work with the Trump administration "to advance peace, stability and security in our region". They are seeking an end to Israeli settlement construction and also want the U.S.to support the creation of the Palestine state.
