Abbas adviser says Trump visit could reopen path to talks

Debra Rodriguez | 24 May, 2017, 04:03

"I am committed to trying to achieve a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians", Trump said during a press conference with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Tuesday.

"Speaking before attending a dinner with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump says he believes a new level of partnership in the region is possible - and that it will happen". But I have a feeling we're going to get there eventually ... "But I want to thank you especially today for your deep commitment to Israel's security, its wellbeing, and its future".

On one of the gray concrete walls, the convoy passed a portrait of Leila Khaled, a Palestinian militant who took part in two aircraft hijackings in 1969 and 1970.

The President's 9 day trip includes stops in Saudi Arabia and a trip to the Vatican to meet with the Pope.

Trump has repeatedly underscored US support for Israel during his first global trip as president. "Our problem is the occupation and the settlements and the fact that Israel does not recognize the Palestinian state".

"Iran's leaders routinely call for Israel's destruction", Trump said.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump exchanged pleasantries with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife before boarding Air Force One. "Not with Donald J. Trump", he said.

In planning for Trump's visit to Israel, the US delegation rejected a request that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accompany him to the Western Wall, telling the Israelis it is "not your territory". "They're all saying I did, so you have another story wrong".

"I also firmly believe that if Israel and the Palestinians can make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the Middle East, and that would be an incredible accomplishment". The President also discussed the important work of defeating violent ideologies and welcomed the action and support of any nation that would help Israel and the United States in that effort.

"I look forward to working with Abbas to unlock the potential of the Palestinian economy, which is having a very rough time", Trump said, alluding to how Israeli military control over the West Bank and Gaza may affect Palestinian businesses.

Both Israel and the Sunni leaders of the region consider Iran their arch-enemy.
