US seeking ‘serious’ Mideast talks: Palestinian FM


The U.S. wants to see “serious” negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

"Negotiations would be based on explanations given by [Palestinian] President Mahmoud Abbas to U.S. envoy for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt during their Tuesday meeting in Ramallah," the ministry said in a statement.

 

At that meeting, the ministry said, Abbas had briefed Greenblatt on Palestinian national aspirations, the daily suffering faced by the Palestinian people as a result of Israel’s decades-long occupation, and the “catastrophic risks” associated with continued Israeli settlement building.

 

The ministry went on to note that the Palestinian Authority was responsive to "the efforts of U.S. President Donald Trump's administration to resolve the conflict on the basis of a two-state solution and achieve peace and security for the Palestinian and Israeli people".

 

Greenblatt visited the region earlier this week for a days-long visit, during which he met with Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
