President Trump will host Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House on May 3, the White House said Wednesday.

The meeting highlights Mr. Trump’s efforts to broker a Middle East peace deal that has eluded so many of his predecessors.

“They will use the visit to reaffirm the commitment of both the United States and Palestinian leadership to pursuing and ultimately concluding a conflict-ending settlement between the Palestinians and Israel,” said White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Mr. Trump met last month with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Mr. Netanyahu emerged from that meeting saying he was determined to advance the peace process with Palestinians and the rest of the Arab world.
