(Bethlehem, West Bank) -- President Biden says his commitment to a goal of a two-state solution with Palestine and Israel hasn't changed.

Biden met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank Friday as part of his Middle East trip. During a joint press conference, Abbas called for the end of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and for a two-state solution that uses the 1967 border lines.

Biden also announced a 316-million dollar aid package for Palestine.
