J Street cautiously applauds Trump’s ‘determination’ to reach Mideast peace

The left-wing American Jewish Mideast policy group J Street says it’s “encouraged by US President Donald Trump’s determination… to launch a serious attempt to negotiate an end to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.”

The statement comes on the heels of a joint press conference between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Trump, who said he would “do whatever is necessary” to facilitate a peace agreement.

In a statement, J Street says it still awaiting “critical details about how he sees such a peace being achieved.”

The group reiterates its support for a two-state solution, and calls on Trump to “commit himself to this principle without further delay if he is serious about pursuing peace.”
