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

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

Most significantly for the Palestinians was the failure to obtain economic freedom to develop what is termed "Area C" in the 1993 Oslo Accords - the section of the West Bank under both Israeli administrative and security control - and a commitment from the American interlocutors to establish dates and milestones for the negotiating process it oversees.

"I have met with Trump envoys about 20 times since the beginning of his term as president of the United States", Abbas said in a meeting with the left-wing Meretz Party in Israel, according to a report in Haaretz.

Kushner met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday in Ramallah, along with senior officials from both sides, as the White House sketches out a plan to strike what Trump has called "the ultimate deal" between Israelis and Palestinians.

But Palestinian leaders note that the White House has not even said clearly whether its focus will be a two-state solution to the conflict, which has been longstanding USA policy.

The American delegation told Abbas that the Trump administration will first work towards strengthening security and financial relations between the two sides.

"We are not going to state what the outcome has to be - it has to be workable to both sides". They talked to us about incitement.

Aloul left out that the Palestinians have refused successive offers of a state made by Israel on numerous occasions.

Kushner said on Thursday that "President Trump is very optimistic and hopes for a better future for the Palestinian people and the Israeli people".

Signalling their frustration, some Palestinian leaders have spoken of taking a harder line in recent days.

But there was no indication at all of a breakthrough or even any meaningful progress that emanated from Kushner et al's separate meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

More so, Abbas said that Israeli transgressions must come to an end.

He is also facing a graft investigation that limits his room for political manoeuvre, Shapiro noted.

Ahmed Majdalani، a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) which Abbas heads، told AFP on Wednesday they were demanding "a clear and frank answer on the position of the administration on the two-state solution and settlements".
