An aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said he'll meet with US President Barack Obama in Washington on May 28. Nabil Abu Rdeneh said Abbas wants the US to persuade the new Israeli government to accept a two-state solution - namely, separate Israeli and Palestinian states living alongside each other in peace. Abbas also wants the US to persuade Israel to halt its settlement construction. Israel's new government is skeptical that a Palestinian state can be established before the PA commits to its Road Map obligations. And Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said he plans to keep building in settlements. On Tuesday, Obama said he expected Israelis and Palestinians to make "gestures of good faith" within months to revive the languishing Mideast peace process. The White House said Netanyahu would also visit Washington in the next few weeks.
