Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump’s Special Representative, Jason Greenblatt, met one more time Thursday (March 16) for what the prime minister called “another positive discussion regarding the shared interest of the United States and Israel.”
Netanyahu said the discussion focused on “advancing a genuine and lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians that strengthens the security of Israel.”
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, “towards that end,” in addition to discussing how to achieve progress in the coming months, the two men “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,” the statement said.
