President Donald Trump is meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and says they "are giving it an absolute go'" in Middle East peace talks.
Trump on Monday said that "we're working very hard" to reach a deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Netanyahu said that Israel's alliance with the United States has been "never stronger" than now under the Trump administration. He also blasted the Iran nuclear agreement.
Asked if the U.S. would stay in that deal, Trumped answered only "you'll see very soon."
Trump's meeting with Netanyahu was the first of the many world leader confabs he is scheduled to have on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly this week.
He is slated to meet with the Palestinians in the coming days.
