A top adviser to Donald Trump has met Israeli settler leaders in an unusual move that may raise fresh concerns over prospects for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The US embassy confirmed that talks between Jason Greenblatt and leaders of the Israeli settler movement took place in Jerusalem as part of the White House official’s wide-ranging meetings this week.
The Yesha Council, the main Israeli settler organisation, said it was believed to be the highest-level official meeting ever for the organisation with a US administration.
The meeting was attended by the Yesha leaders Oded Revivi and Yossi Dagan.
“Representatives from Yesha have met with [the former US secretary of state] John Kerry and others on the sidelines of events, but we have not had official meetings like this,” a spokesman said.
