Trump expresses ‘reluctance’ on chances for Middle East peace

US President Donald Trump expressed reservations Thursday about reaching a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians but said he had not given up on his efforts to bring the two sides together, The Times of Israel reports.

Trump has repeatedly said he wants to reach the “ultimate deal” by brokering a peace accord and has tasked a number of his senior advisers, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner to mediate between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Speaking alongside the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah at a White House press conference Thursday, Trump said: “I think there is a chance that there could be peace, but again I say that a little bit reluctantly.”
