​We welcome and share President Trump’s desire to bring an end to the Israel-Palestinian conflict. We agree on the importance of the US bringing forward detailed proposals for a viable peace agreement that addresses the legitimate concerns of both parties. We continue to believe the best way to achieve this is through substantive peace talks between the parties leading to a two-state solution with Jerusalem as a shared capital.
