White House: Egypt ready to help Palestinians and assist in peace talks

Creating a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians “will take time,” a senior White House official said.

The official reiterated requirements laid out last week by Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the peace process, on a Palestinian government that includes Hamas, namely adhering to the Quartet principles: unambiguously and explicitly committing to nonviolence; recognizing the State of Israel; accepting previous agreements and obligations between the parties – including to disarm terrorists; and committing to peaceful negotiations.
