German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier met Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Tuesday, as part of his official visit to the region.

Steinmeier said during a news conference with Abbas in the West Bank city that the changes in the region require a new Israeli-Palestinians peace drive.

Abbas said he was prepared to hold a US-sponsored meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Plans are being firmed up for US President Donald Trump to visit Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Abbas in the West Bank on May 22 and 23, say people familiar with the matter. That has sparked speculation about a meeting of the three.

During his four-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Steinmeier has met Israeli and Palestinian leaders and met with academics, students and Holocaust survivors.
