Kushner leads United States delegation for peace talks in Middle East

Following visits in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt, Trump administration envoys met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday, afterward traveling to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Jason Greenblatt, President Trump's Special Representative for International Negotiations, and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner will arrive in Israel Wednesday ahead of talks with Israeli and Palestinian officials Thursday.

"In the intervening months, as the political circumstances of the leaders in the region have changed and frankly deteriorated from the point of view of their flexibility, and as President Trump's own standing has taken a beating because of his domestic controversies, I believe his leverage has diminished considerably". "I think that they are still in the process of learning".

Before the start of the meeting Trump posted a message to Netanyahu on social media: "There is no doubt that our relationship with you is stronger than ever!"

"We have a lot of things to talk about - how to advance peace, stability and security in our region, prosperity too", Netanyahu said in brief public remarks as he met Kushner in Tel Aviv.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will hold a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan next week.

Shenmue III's first teaser trailer was worth the wait
Many have taken to criticise the newest trailer , noting that the graphics and style aren't in keeping with the PS4 generation. Since then, the team has been extremely busy developing the game in Tokyo, but now it's time to come up for air.

It was not clear whether Kushner offered any clarity during his three-hour meeting with Abbas.

Painting a pessimistic picture, Mahmoud Al Aloul, the second-ranking official in Abbas' Fateh movement, accused USA negotiators of focusing in their talks with the president on "Israeli lies" about Palestinian incitement to violence and ignoring what he described as fundamental statehood issues. The envoys are scheduled to meet Israeli lawmakers in Jerusalem and Palestinian officials in Ramallah later this week.

After initially welcoming the election of Trump, the Palestinians have expressed increasing frustration with what they say is a failure by the USA president to offer a clear vision for peace. I mean, why are you so loath to say - to commit yourself - to recommit yourself to the two-state solution?

"If Trump is really interested in the ultimate deal as he calls it, he needs to be tougher on Israel on the issue of settlements", Ms Ben-Nun said.

Israel, meanwhile, has increasingly shifted its sights toward a regional deal with certain Arab countries, rather than one focusing exclusively on the Palestinians, an approach Trump has expressed support for.

Palestinian leaders have grown frustrated with the White House after initially holding out hope that Trump could bring a fresh approach to peace efforts despite his pledges of staunch support for Israel. "There is no government that does more for the settlement in the land of Israel than this government under my leadership", he said.
