Most significantly for the Palestinians was the failure to obtain economic freedom to develop what is termed "Area C" in the 1993 Oslo Accords - the section of the West Bank under both Israeli administrative and security control - and a commitment from the American interlocutors to establish dates and milestones for the negotiating process it oversees.
A senior White House official over the weekend denied a report appearing in the Arab al-Hayat newspaper stating that during a meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), US special advisor Jared Kushner told the PA leader the US will not demand a settlement freeze from Israel for doing so will topple PM Netanyahu.
Netanyahu said such a deal was "within our reach" and promised to work with the Trump administration "to advance peace, stability and security in our region". Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, along with peace envoy Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell, met with Abbas on August 24 as part of a trip to the region aimed at looking at trying to renew peace negotiations.
Despite his recent pessimism, Abbas sounded a positive note during his meeting with Kushner. "We know that things are hard and complicated, but nothing is impossible with honest efforts". Gen. Majid Faraj, and Mahmoud Abbas's spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh.
Accompanied by a high-level American delegation, Kushner on Thursday reiterated Trump's commitment to finding a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which the President has referred to as "the ultimate deal", reports CNN.
The visit comes with both Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not in position to make major concessions, some analysts say, and no details have emerged of how Trump's team would overcome that.
"We affirm that this [US] delegation is working toward peace, and we are working with it to achieve soon what Trump called the 'peace deal, '" he added.
In his remarks carried by the official PA news outlet, Wafa, Kushner did not mention a two-state solution and only offered vague sentiments about peace in the future.
Should Kushner and his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, fail to strong-arm the Israelis back in line, the Palestinians said they would "turn to an alternative plan on which they have been working for the past two years".
