Representatives of the administration trump had previously visited Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Amman and Cairo, and held a series of talks in Jerusalem and Ramallah. Palestinian and Israeli media have said the pessimism and mutual distrust at the talks in Ramallah, and the absence of a clear plan of action, but surrounded by trump saying that the support of Arab countries, new peace initiatives are quite encouraging.
Recall that previous personal meeting Donald trump with Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas took place at the end of may in Jerusalem and Beit lehem (Bethlehem). Then the newspaper «Israel a-Yom» wrote about the essence of a new peace plan initiated by the White house: a settlement on the basis of the so-called Arab peace initiative is expected to begin the normalization of relations between Israel and the Arab countries, and only in the second stage to create a Palestinian state on the basis of the principle of «Two States for two peoples.» The us administration proposes to establish a clear time frame to address all fundamental issues, especially the definition of the boundaries of a future Palestinian state, the status of Jerusalem, the Holy places and the Israeli settlements located outside major settlement enclaves. Then trump also told Abbas that Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States support this proposal and are ready to begin normalizing relations with Israel prior to the signing of the Israeli-Palestinian peace Treaty, but peace between the Arab States and Israel will be signed after signing of the Palestinian-Israeli agreement.
