(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump's Special
Representative, Jason Greenblatt, met today (Thursday, 16 March 2017), for
another positive discussion regarding the shared interest of the United
States and Israel in advancing a genuine and lasting peace between Israel
and the Palestinians that strengthens the security of Israel. Toward that
end, in addition to discussing how to achieve progress in the coming months,
they discussed concrete measures that could help support and advance
Palestinian economic development.
They also made progress on the issue of Israeli settlement construction,
following up on President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu's agreement in
Washington last month to work out an approach that reflects both leaders'
views. Those discussions are continuing between the White House and the
Prime Minister's Office.
