President Trump told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that his nation must quickly craft a peace deal with Israel during their first phone call together Friday, according to the White House. It was the first contact between the two leaders since Trump took office.
The Palestinian leader called for a "Palestine and Israel, living side by side on the pre-1967 borders in peace and security".
"The president promised his full commitment to peace and to the two-state solution, and we emphasized our permanent stand, that we are for peace based on two states according to worldwide decisions, and that we are part of global legitimacy", Abbas reportedly said of his Friday conversation with Trump, of which he also said that he and his team are appreciative.
Abbas said he was willing to work with Trump on a potential two-state solution in February. There has been no word of date for the Abbas White House meeting.
During his meeting with Netanyahu, the USA leader had said he would "love to see" the American embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a plan also opposed by the Palestinians.
At a February 15 news conference during Netanyahu's visit, Trump was ambivalent about a two-state solution, the mainstay of USA policy in the region for the past two decades.
He will also stress the importance of the two-state solution to a lasting peace process for both sides.
Greenblatt will be getting together Monday with President Reuven Rivlin and will then meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador in Washington.
Unnamed officials said last month that Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo paid a secret visit to Ramallah, and there have been reports of lower-level contacts between officials in Washington and Ramallah. "The president invited President Abbas to a meeting at the White House in the near future".
It may be mentioned here that Donald Trump backed Israeli premier Netanyahu regarding settlements in disputed territory thus trumpeting the arrival of tough days for Palestine. Since taking office on January 20, Trump has spoken by phone with Netanyahu twice and hosted him at the White House.
Although Trump said during the presidential campaign that he didn't see settlements as an impediment to peace, when he met with Netanyahu, he asked the Israelis to "hold back on settlements for a little bit", a position that surprised the prime minister.
