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

Posted August 28, 2017

Kushner heard out the Palestinian leader's demands and postponed any responses for the next meeting they have.

If one were to read only the diplo-speak through which the Trump Administration Mideast peace envoys summarized their just-concluded trip to Jerusalem and Ramallah, it would be apparent that there was little of note to report.

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is part of a delegation that traveled to the Middle East for peace talks, the Trump administration said Tuesday.

However, Abbas stressed that negotiations should be based on the framework of a two-state solution and for illegal settlements to cease.

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.

US officials have said that they have not ruled out a two-state solution but that it is up to the two sides, not them, to agree on a way forward.

Accompanied by a high-level American delegation, Kushner on Thursday reiterated Trump's commitment to finding a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which the President has referred to as "the ultimate deal", reports CNN.

Signalling their frustration, some Palestinian leaders have spoken of taking a harder line in recent days.

Well-informed Palestinian sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that no significant breakthrough occurred at the Abbas-Kushner meeting.

All of which suggest that the meeting in Ramallah on Thursday was as terse and unproductive as the one in June had been, but both sides - and possibly the Netanyahu government as well - prefer to smear a heap of lipstick on this pig.

An 8-year-old Palestinian girl was killed on Saturday after being struck by an Israeli vehicle in the Nablus district of the nerthern occupied West Bank, according to Israeli sources.

More so, Abbas said that Israeli transgressions must come to an end. "We aren't deluding ourselves; there can be no advancement in the peace process with the right-wing Israeli government under the leadership of Netanyahu".

He is also facing a graft investigation that limits his room for political manoeuvre, Shapiro noted.

At which point Trump's son-in-law told Abbas that the USA would not ask Israel to halt settlement construction because such a move would mean the collapse of the Netanyahu government.
