No Progress in Latest Round of Talks Between Kushner and PA's Abbas

"We want to work toward a peace that both sides can agree to and that both sides find sustainable". "We know that things are hard and complicated, but there is nothing impossible with good efforts".

"President Trump has made it clear that it is a top priority for him to work toward achieving a comprehensive and lasting peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians", a USA official said.

President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner led last week's mission, with the delegation also including Jason Greenblatt, envoy for global negotiations, and deputy national security adviser Dina Powell. Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians have been at a standstill since the failure of US mediation in the spring of 2014.

Aloul, considered one of the candidates to succeed Abbas as the head of Fatah, said in an interview with Saudi news site Elaph regarding the visit of an American delegation last week in Israel that, "These visits haven't led to any results".

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will hold talks in Ankara on August 28 amid calls for the resumption of negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis to end the conflict.

For weeks Palestinian officials have called on the United States to back a two-state solution and ask Israel to stop building settlements in the occupied West Bank, which most of the worldwide community considers illegal and an obstacle to the creation of any future Palestinian state. The reason being the Palestinian Authority informed the United States that he was not welcomed in Ramallah.

"We have told the Americans that we are committed to the American effort،" Khatib said.

The visit comes with both Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not in position to make major concessions, some analysts say, and no details have emerged of how Trump's team would overcome that.

Trump is "very committed to achieving a solution here that will be able to bring prosperity and peace to all people in the area", Kushner said ahead of his meeting with Netanyahu, which took place earlier Thursdayy.

More so, Abbas said that Israeli transgressions must come to an end.

In past weeks, skepticism was sounded by Palestinian officials about USA peace efforts, but both Netanyahu and Abbas have expressed willingness to cooperate with American efforts to renew the talks.
