Trump travels to Bethlehem for talks with Palestinian president

"The most important thing is that all parties agree on the way forward that President Trump gives us what we need, which is political support and fair mediation keeping an equal distance from ll parties, and performing what we all need which is a third party that would implement the vision that has been endorsed by the worldwide community", he said.

President Donald Trump's flight from Riyadh to Tel Aviv on Monday may make history as the first direct flight between Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Speaking alongside Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump was referencing revelations that he divulged classified information about an Islamic State threat in a recent meeting with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador.

In separate remarks on Tuesday, both Netanyahu and Abbas said they believed the time was ripe for peace, pointing to the initiative Trump has taken to facilitate a revival of peace talks - though both pointed the finger at the other side in describing the obstacles to peace.

Trump, who co-authored The Art of the Deal, has repeatedly referred to brokering peace between Israel and Palestine as "the ultimate deal".

"President Trump reaffirmed his belief that peace is possible, not only between Israelis and Palestinians, but throughout large parts of the Middle East", the release explained.

Trump uses Israel visit to champion "ultimate deal" for peaceU.S. President Donald Trump is on a quest for 'the ultimate deal.' Trump has pledged to work with Israelis and Palestinians to negotiate a peace agreement.

Trump promised during his campaign to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but has since backed off that pledge - at least for now. Abbas is an unpopular leader, according to polls, and the Palestinian political landscape is split between his Fatah party and Hamas, the Islamist movement that is in control in the Gaza Strip and opposes negotiations with Israel.
