Donald Trump is sending his top White House adviser, son-in-law Jared Kushner to the Middle East this week to discuss possible next steps for brokering peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
The meetings in Jerusalem and Ramallah follow Mr Trump’s discussions in May with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Appearing at a press conference with Mr Netanyahu in Jerusalem, Mr Trump declared that the Palestinians are “ready to reach for peace”.
In February, Mr Trump had warned Israel that building more homes in Jewish settlements was not “good for peace”, reversing comments he had made earlier on the topic.
