"Both sides agreed to continue with the US-led conversations as the best way to reach a comprehensive peace deal".
"We know that this issue is hard and complex, but nothing is impossible in the face of good efforts", Abbas said during the parley with Kushner, according to official PA news outlet Wafa.
A USA delegation led by Jared Kushner had a "productive" meeting with the Palestinian Authority on how to begin Middle East peace talks, the State Department said Friday, though some Palestinian officials expressed frustration that the US still has not committed to a two-state solution.
Kushner, special representative for worldwide negotiations Jason Greenblatt and deputy national security advisor Dina Powell held talks with the PA president in Ramallah on Thursday after meeting with a number of Middle East leaders in the past several days.
The traveling delegation met with leaders from the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia early this week before heading to Israel on Wednesday.
But the US delegation refrained from committing to a two-state solution - the primary focus of peace efforts for decades.
However, the White House is yet to lay out a framework for negotiations following multiple meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
