US President Donald Trump held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, on the sidelines of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, announcing after the meeting that he was in favor of a two-state solution.
Trump said at a joint press conference that he believed the two-state solution would "work better," expressing his confidence that the Palestinians would return to the negotiating table.
With regards to the so-called "Deal of the Century", Trump said that his administration would be able to unveil its agenda within a few months’ time, adding that "Israel must do something good for the other side.”
According to reports regarding the plan, the Palestinian Authority would be offered non-contiguous parts of Judea and Samaria with limited sovereignty and without East Jerusalem as its capital city. Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria, for the most part, would be allowed to remain.
In addition, no Palestinian Arabs would be granted the"right of return" to Israel.
