The American president Donald Trump has said on Tuesday “everything to do” to peace between Israel and the Palestinians to achieve. Trump made the statement after a meeting with the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.

During the conversation with Abbas in Bethlehem said Trump happy to be the Palestinian leader has committed to taking steps to “terrorism fighting”, reports the BBC.

“I am dedicated to attempts at a peace agreement between the israelis and the Palestinians to reach”, said Trump. “And I have the intention to do everything to help them achieve that goal.”

He added that the president of the Palestinian Authority had secured to be ready to get to that goal and that the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu him the same had promised.

According to the American president would be a peace agreement between the two parties, which is already three years not with each other, about peace negotiations, “one of the hardest deals” to close.

The visit of Trump led to demonstrations by Palestinians in Gaza and on the occupied West Bank. That turned also to the bad conditions for Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

‘Unbreakable bond’

After his meeting with Abbas turned Trump back to Jerusalem for a visit to the Holocaustmonument Yad Vashem.

Monday said Trump during a visit to Israel that he had come to “the unbreakable bond between the U.S. and Israel to reaffirm” and that he was “a rare opportunity to have security and stability and peace” to the region see.

The reality is that there are still major bottlenecks in the dialogue between Israel and the Palestinians. They think very differently about issues such as the future of the israeli-occupied East Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees and the borders of an independent Palestine.

Two-state solution

These problems are of a practical implementation of the so-called ‘two-state solution’ in the way, while that solution is considered as the only viable. The leaders on both sides of the question have no trust in each other, in terms of the negotiations is expected to be difficult.

Moreover, the Palestinians themselves are strongly divided: the Fatah party of Abbas, the service on the West Bank, but Gaza is in the hands of the islamist Hamas, who in recent days several times by Trump is condemned as a terrorist.

The presidential aircraft Air Force One departed Tuesday afternoon from the airport Ben-Gurion in Tel Aviv. Trump is later in the day expected in Italy.
