It is believed that Netanyahu will tell the president that he is willing to negotiate with the Palestinians but there is no practical feasibility to establish a state. Netanyahu will mention that he previously agreed to direct negotiations, but the Palestinians refused.


Tomorrow, Wednesday, at 19:00 Israel time, US President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu will meet for the first time since Trump entered the White House.

Trump and Netanyahu are expected to hold a press conference at the White House at the end of the meeting.
