"While President Trump had productive meetings with Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas at the United Nations, we always said that the UN would not focus on peace conversations and that those conversations would be happening on a separate track," the official said. "The meetings are part of the Administration’s quiet, steady discussions towards peace."

Sukkot begins on October 4.
