A breakthrough in peace talks between Israel and Palestine during the United Nations General Assembly next week is not expected by the Trump administration, Haaretz reported Saturday.

"Achieving peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians remains one of the president's highest priorities but the United Nations meetings will primarily focus on other issues and serve as check-in opportunities," a White House senior official told Haaretz.

The talks have reached an impasse following White House adviser Jared Kushner’s trip to the Middle East in late August. Palestine has skepticism about the lack of progress because there is no clear outline for peace. 

“If the U.S. team doesn’t bring answers to our questions this time, we are going to look into our options because the status quo is not working for our interests,” said Ahmad Majdalani, an aide to Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas.
