Trump seeking 'chance’ to revive Mideast peace process


US President Donald Trump is sending three of his aides to the Middle East to revive the Palestinian-Israeli peace process in a step that renews the US direct engagement in this file, the White House announced on Friday.


The delegation will meet with leaders from Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the statement added.

In a statement, the White House said Trump “believes that the restoration of calm and the stabilized situation in al-Quds after the recent crisis on Haram al Sharif has created an opportunity to continue discussions and the pursuit of peace that began early in his administration.

The White House also said the visit of the aides to the Middle East is based on Trump’s “various meetings” with top administration officials, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser H.R. McMaster.
