U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday expressed hope that the Israel-Palestinian Authority (PA) conflict could be solved, following his meeting at the White House with PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
“An honor to host President Mahmoud Abbas at the WH today. Hopefully something terrific could come out [of] it between the Palestinians & Israel,” Trump tweeted.
Trump told Abbas earlier that a Middle East peace agreement was within grasp, saying, “We will get it done,” and adding that together with the Israelis they could bag “the toughest deal to make.”
“It is something that I think is frankly, maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years,” the President said.
Abbas echoed Trump’s sentiments, saying, “Our strategic option, our strategic choice is to bring about peace. We believe that we can… be true partners to you to bring about a historic peace under your stewardship.”
