"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.
