Trump tells Abbas 'very good chance' of Mid-East peace deal

US President Donald Trump has said there is "a very good chance" of a Middle East peace deal, during talks with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

In a joint press conference with his guest at the White House, Mr Trump vowed: "We will get this done".

Mr Abbas told his US counterpart he wants peace based on a longstanding plan for a two-state solution along pre-1967 boundaries.

"Now, Mr President, with you we have hope," Mr Abbas said.
