Greenblatt’s agenda is not yet clear, but he is likely to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, though not with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Trump said last month that he hoped to unveil his Israeli-Palestinian peace proposal before January. He also — for the first time since taking office — said he favored a two-state outcome to the conflict.
“I like the two-state solution,” hetold reporters at a press gaggle with Netanyahu at the UN General Assembly meeting in New York. “That’s what I think works best. I don’t even have to speak to anybody, that’s my feeling.”
Members of the president’s team tasked with negotiating a deal — Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Greenblatt — have said they are working on finalizing the proposal but have stopped short of saying when exactly they plan to make its contents public.
