Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday reiterated that he is ready to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu under the auspices of US President Donald Trump, without mentioning preconditions.

“We affirmed to [Trump] that we are ready to cooperate with him and meet the Israeli prime minister under his auspices in order to make peace,” Abbas told a joint press conference with German President Frank Walter Steinmeier. Abbas did not refer to preconditions such as a settlement freeze or a prisoner release.

Nabil Shaath, Abbas’s foreign policy adviser, declined to comment on Tuesday if a settlement freeze is necessary for the renewal of peace talks.

“We will have to discuss that issue in future meetings with the Trump administration,” he said.
