The Trump administration is pushing for a regional conference that would resolve the conflict between Israel, the Palestinians and the international community over Jerusalem, according to officials familiar with the effort.
The move could come as soon as the weekend, according the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
The goal of the conference is to address the long-running conflict between Israelis and Palestinians over the disputed city, which includes the Old City of Jerusalem.
The talks would be held under the auspices of the United Nations.
The White House has not yet responded to a request for comment.
A resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would be a rare moment for Trump to engage directly with his Arab allies.
Trump has long been criticized for having an antagonistic relationship with his Israeli and Palestinian counterparts, which often makes it hard to achieve his strategic goals.
But he has rarely expressed his views on the subject.
The president is a frequent visitor to Israel and has often met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is also Israeli.
His relationship with the Israelis has improved in recent months as the two countries have come to appreciate each other.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump said that he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which would be his first foreign policy initiative as president.
The Palestinians have long said they want East Jerusalem as their capital, and Trump has repeatedly said he would not recognize the city.
A plan to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that would be technically legal, has also been delayed, but has not been ruled out.
The administration is also considering a series of measures, including the creation of a permanent U.N. Security Council seat for Jerusalem, the officials said.
Trump is also likely to announce new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program, and could decide to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord.
But the U!
position is still unclear, and there is no indication that Trump would go along with the proposal.
