Will do everything to achieve Israel-Palestinian peace deal

"President Trump, working with you, I believe we can advance a global peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors as well as the Palestinians", Netanyahu said.

Expressing optimism that a peace deal could finally be brokered to end the almost 70-year-old conflict and suggested a resolution may not be hard to obtain it.

"President Abbas assures me he is ready to work towards that goal in good faith, and Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu has promised the same".

President Donald Trump's trip to Israel was presented as a test of his ability to make the ultimate deal, but it's serving to underscoring just how hard it is to strike a peace accord between Israelis and Palestinians. The Prime Minister thanked President Trump for visiting the Western Wall and for his "deep commitment to Israel's security, it's well-being, and it's future".

Trump, who once called a Middle East peace agreement "the ultimate deal", has touted peace talks during his Israel trip but still offered few details on how he could achieve them, or whether he has resolved his own policy conflicts with the region.

President Donald Trump said his administration "will always stand with Israel" but said the Palestinians are "ready to reach for peace". "So, we are telling you right now, that Iran will not have nuclear weapons", he said.

The U.S. president arrived in Israel on Monday after a two-day visit to Saudi Arabia, where Trump said King Salman assured him Riyadh wants peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

"As I have repeatedly said, I'm personally committed to helping Israelis and Palestinians achieve a peace agreement". "He did not weigh in Israeli settlements, the status of Jerusalem or even whether the US would continue to insist on a two-state solution giving the Palestinians sovereign territory".

Mr Abbas said he welcomed Mr Trump's efforts, which had "given all the nations across the region so much hope and optimism of the possibility of making a dream come true". Trump is expected to make remarks during the meeting on the deadly explosion at a concert in Manchester.

Trump spoke in the Middle East on his first foreign trip, saying he would not call those responsible "monsters, because they would like that term". Tonight, Trump is flying to the Vatican, where he's slated to meet with Pope Francis on Wednesday.

Israelis have experienced firsthand terror, President Trump said, adding that Islamic State threatens Jewish institutions.
