Palestinians give Trump 45 days to meet their demands

Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, will arrive in the region on Thursday accompanied by special envoy for worldwide negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser.

Kushner and Greenblatt traveled to the Middle East previously this summer to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met senior U.S. officials, including presidential adviser Jared Kushner, in Jeddah and discussed efforts to bring about peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, the state Saudi Press Agency has reported.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will make an official visit to Turkey on August 28, presidential spokesman announced Wednesday.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas (R) meets with Meretz chairwoman Zehava Galon (2nd R) at the presidential residence in Ramallah, West Bank, on August 20, 2017.

The Palestinian president has said he would pressure Kushner to have the White House reaffirm commitment to the two-state solution.


The visit to the region will also have the group meet with delegations from Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, Politico reported.

While Ramallah has officially welcomed USA peace efforts, officials have begun to grumble about what they see as a lack of U.S. commitment to a two-state solution or finding a way forward, as well as a bias toward Israel's positions.

Kushner was charged with helping to broker a deal between Israelis and Palestinians after Trump took office.

"If we don't hear within a month and a half that the American team has stopped talking and started doing, Abbas intends to mobilize anyone and everyone he can for the UN General Assembly session on the establishment of a Palestinian state, regardless of the Israeli and American reactions", the official told Al-Monitor. "I urged them to say the same thing to Netanyahu, but they recoil".

Bannon skipped a May White House meeting with Abbas.

"I don't understand their conduct towards us, as inside his country the administration is in chaos", Abbas reportedly added.
