US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said in the statement "We recognize that this meeting was a starting point and that there is much work to do over the coming weeks and months to build a stable and prosperous future for Israelis and Palestinians alike. Implementation will be critical."

On behalf of US President Joseph Biden, Sullivan extended thanks to His Majesty King Abdullah for convening the meeting, and to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi for efforts during recent weeks to establish the conditions for its success.

This was the first meeting of its kind in years, with regional and international participation, to discuss the situation in the Palestinian territories. The five parties agreed to convene again in Sharm El-Sheikh in March.
