Trump Says Israeli Settlements Complicate Peace Course of

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday at the start of talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that he had discussed the Middle East conflict with his usa counterpart Donald Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump declined to give a timeline for releasing the U.S. plan for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, telling an Israeli newspaper that he is not convinced that either party is committed to the process.

Erekat's comments come just weeks after Palestinians set their sights on challenging Trump's US embassy move in the International Court of Justice.

Trump and Putin also reportedly talked about the Mideast peace process prior to Putin's meeting with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in Moscow.

Ishtayeh stressed on the strict Palestinian rejection of Trump's declaration on Jerusalem, adding that "Jerusalem would remain the capital of the Palestinians, no matter how Israel, the United States or others made decisions contrary to that". -Israeli relations are at an all-time high, he said, and the chance to make peace "will never happen after this".

In another controversial move apparently aimed at forcing Palestinians into negotiations with the Israelis, the United States has been applying economic pressure. Israel has annexed East Jerusalem and declared the entire city as its capital, a move not recognized by the worldwide community.

"And I am not necessarily sure that Israel is looking to make peace ..."

The U.S. leader, however, expressed doubts that Palestine or Israel are seeking to reach peace at the current moment.

Trump told Putin that "now is the time to work toward an enduring peace agreement", according to a White House statement. "So we are just going to have to see what happens", Trump said, refusing to share any details on America's roadmap out of this latest mire.

President Trump made the controversial announcement on December 6 past year, instructing the State Department to relocate the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

"I wish for everybody good things", Adelson replied.

Trump last spoke to Putin in December, when the Russian leader called to thank him for a Central Intelligence Agency tip that helped thwart a terror plot in St. Petersburg.

Even though the United Nations has declared the Israeli settlements, now being built on Israeli-occupied Palestinian land, illegal, the expansion has continued under Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's watch. Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967 and proceeded to effectively annex it, in breach of global law.

Israel claims the whole of the city as its capital but the Palestinians want East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war, to be the capital of a future Palestinian state.
