NEW YORK (Reuters) – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said his meeting with Donald Trump on Wednesday attested to the U.S. president’s seriousness about reaching a Middle East peace deal soon. Abbas thanked Trump for hosting him at the meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly gathering of world leaders in New York. “If this is any proof to anything … it attests to the seriousness of your excellency, Mr. President, to achieve the deal of the century in the Middle East during this year or in the coming months, God willing,” Abbas said through an interpreter.
