United States calls talk with Abbas 'productive'


The US delegation also purportedly informed the Palestinians that it would work towards advancing economic, security and diplomatic collaboration between the sides before initiating direct peace talks. "There hasn't been any".

"Without a vision it will be negotiations for negotiations sake", Khatib said.

If one were to read only the diplo-speak through which the Trump Administration Mideast peace envoys summarized their just-concluded trip to Jerusalem and Ramallah, it would be apparent that there was little of note to report.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Ankara on an official visit Sunday.

"We highly appreciate President Trump's efforts to strike a historical peace deal، a statement he repeated more than one time during our meetings in Washington، Riyadh and Bethlehem،" Abbas said at the start of his meeting with Kushner، according to the PA's official Wafa news agency.

"We know that things are hard and complicated, but there is nothing impossible with these good efforts".


Even before the meeting، PA officials expressed pessimism that Washington's peace efforts could bear fruit.

For weeks Palestinian officials have called on the United States to back a two-state solution and ask Israel to stop building settlements in the occupied West Bank, which most of the worldwide community considers illegal and an obstacle to the creation of any future Palestinian state.

The current administration has broken from the norm accepted by its predecessors, as they have spoken over and over of the two-state solution and the need for Israeli land concessions.

Last Wednesday, his State Department echoed Trump's earlier sentiment. "It was agreed to continue the dialogue aimed at reaching a comprehensive and historic peace deal". "This is a big problem in mindset and we won't agree to continue down this path". "We believe that both parties should be able to find a workable solution that works for both of them".

According to the Israel Hayom report, Kushner promised Abbas that in their scheduled meeting at the United Nations in September, Trump would give a guarantee to his Palestinian counterpart that a peace plan would be put to both sides within four months.

They have also held talks with Egyptian, Saudi, Emirati, Qatari and Jordanian officials.
