U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in two weeks, senior Israeli and PA officials told Haaretz on Tuesday night.
The President is expected to discuss his planned peace initiative with Netanyahu and Abbas. These would be Trump’s first meetings with them since his visit to Israel and the PA in May.
A senior White House official told Haaretz Trump plans to meet with a long list of world leaders on a wide range of issues during the General Assembly session in New York, and a complete list will be published once his schedule is finalized.
He added that talks with Netanyahu and Abbas about Trump’s peace initiative will take place before the General Assembly and will continue afterwards.
Senior Israeli and PA officials, who asked to remain anonymous, said discussions are now being held about the exact dates of the meetings, which will apparently take place between September 17 and 19.
