Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs Jake Sullivan met with Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization Hussein Al-Sheikh at the White House on October 4.  Following up on President Biden’s trip to the West Bank in July, the two discussed U.S. interest in supporting peace and stability, preserving the path towards negotiations for two states, and advancing equal measures of security, prosperity, and freedom for Israelis and Palestinians alike. Sullivan stressed the need to take steps to de-escalate tensions in the West Bank by countering terrorism and incitement, noted the importance of all parties refraining from unilateral actions that threaten stability, and emphasized the need to strengthen Palestinian institutions, including reinforcing commitment to non-violence.
