Donald Trump's team must commit to the two-state solution and opposing settlement construction before the U.S. president's peace push will move forward, Palestinian officials said Wednesday.Jibril Rajoub, a senior member of Abbas's Fatah party, said they would be demanding a clear commitment from Kushner and Greenblatt to an independent Palestinian state.The kingdom is a key player in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the palace said in a statement Abdullah, Kushner and Greenblatt stressed the need to start "serious and effective peace negotiations" on the "basis of the two-state solution".Previous U.S. governments have committed to an independent Palestinian state, but in February Trump broke with longstanding U.S. policy by saying he would be happy with either a one-state or two-state solution if the parties were happy.
