Senior Trump adviser arrives in Cairo for two-day visit

The Palestinians initially welcomed Trump's election, but they have since grown impatient with what they say is a failure by the USA president to present a roadmap for peace.

Since then, conversations have been ongoing, a White House official said.

"The U.S. envoys come empty handed", said Mahmoud Alloul, a top official in Abbas' Fatah movement. Kushner and Abbas expressed optimism about working together to achieve a deal, but there were no concrete steps outlined.

U.S. President Donald Trump is still pushing for the breakthrough he hopes will ultimately clinch an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, but one side of the equation is fast losing hope.

The statement from Abbas's office quoted the Palestinian president as telling Kushner: "We know things are hard and complicated but nothing is impossible when efforts are honest".

Kushner is expected to meet with Egyptian Froeign Minister Sameh Shoukry and President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi. How did the meetings between Kushner and the Arab leaders go?

Netanyahu, under criminal investigation for bribery and breach of trust, has shifted sharply to the right to solidify support among his voter base. Kushner said the administration is focused on a regional approach to resolving the conflict. He also slammed "the left and the media", accusing them of trying to carry out a government coup.

Mr Abbas is unlikely to agree, Mr Masri predicted, but would probably keep the contact going with the Americans "and keep the show going of a process without peace". They thought that it is very simple, and slowly, slowly they are learning that it is very complicated.

Palestinians walk next to Israeli forces at the entrance of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem al-Quds' Old City on July 25, 2017.

"I think this is a sign of the great alliance between us and the great goals that guide us", Netanyahu said, according to the Times of Israel. But he has since given few details on his vision for peace, managing to frustrate both sides. "That's the best view as to not really bias one side over the other, to make sure that they can work through it".

"Abbas is coming to the end of his reign".

Trump himself visited Israel and the Palestinian territories in May. "That is the thinking guiding President Trump and the prime minister of Israel, and so our message to the Palestinians is that time is working against them".

Three months later, Netanyahu and Abbas face different political realities, and Trump's ability to jump-start negotiations may be dwindling. US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman is also meeting with the prime minister.

"I am happy to see you and the effort you're leading on behalf of the (United States) president ..."

Bin Salman and the official talked about ways to achieve "a real and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians" and stability in the wider Middle East and beyond, the Saudi state news agency SPA said.
