President Trump's Mideast adviser Jason Greenblatt is in Israel and will travel Tuesday to the West Bank to meet Palestinian President Machmoud Abbas. There was no mention of a two-state solution during Greenblatt's Monday meeting with Netanyahu.

Jason Greenblatt, for his part, underscored President Trump's commitment to working with Israelis and Palestinians to achieve a lasting peace through direct negotiations.

"I'm looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like".

The American consulate announcement also stated that during the meeting Abbas and Greenblatt expressed a commitment by the United States and the PA to advance a real, sustainable peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Monday's meeting followed Trump's first phone call with P.A. President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday.

We will never know what the two would have brought to the film, but it's hard to see anyone but Gosling and Stone in the leads. Emma Watson is now touring and promoting her latest, the Disney live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

Greenblatt and Ron Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the USA, were appointed by their leaders last month to reach an understanding between the two countries on settlement construction.

The Palestinian gross domestic product now stands at approximately $300 million annually, far less than neighboring Israel's GDP, which is upwards of $12 billion.

The Prime Minister assured Mr. Greenblatt that he was fully committed to broadening prosperity for Palestinians and sees it as a means of bolstering the prospects for peace. The U.S. envoy, who served as chief legal officer for the Trump Organization for 20 years before joining the administration, was to return to Jerusalem from the West Bank for more meetings with Israeli officials, including Isaac Herzog, leader of the opposition in parliament.

In an apparent reference to efforts to come up with guidelines with the U.S. to govern future settlement construction, Netanyahu said, "I can't tell you we reached an agreement, but i think we heard each other out in a serious and friendly way and I think we will probably conclude this effort".

"Netanyahu stuck to his promise to establish the new settlement", the senior official said.
