U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said at a weekend briefing with journalists that during his upcoming trip to the Middle East, President Donald Trump intends to express his hopes to “leaders and peoples alike, across the entire trip” for a “just and lasting peace” between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

“With President [Reuven] Rivlin and Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu]” McMaster said President Trump will “reaffirm America’s unshakable bond with the Jewish State”, and with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, the president will “express his desire for the dignity and self-determination for the Palestinians.”
