Asked if he was concerned that the Trump administration was backing away from a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Jubeir said: "We look forward to working with the Trump administration on all issues in the region."


"We are very, very optimistic about our ability to overcome the many challenges we face in the region," he added.
