At 10:04 am a restricted pool was brought in to a second floor room in the Presidential Palace for a brief photo spray of POTUS and Abbas. Neither spoke at all.
The two leaders sat before their respective flags in brown wooden chairs with red cushions. They held an extended handshake for 10-15 seconds as both looked toward photographers.
Pool spotted Tillerson, McMaster, Kushner, Cohen, and Powell among the U.S. delegation seated against a wall to the left side of the room.
Pool has filed back to the conference room where POTUS and Abbas will make statements.
