Trump Unsure If Israel Genuinely Wants Peace With Palestinians

German Foreign Minister: Trump Support Not Necessarily Good for Israel O'Toole, Kenney agree with Trump: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel

Abbas' diplomatic advisor Majdi Khalidi told official Palestinian radio station Voice of Palestine that the president will meet with Putin tomorrow in Sochi.

Erekat stressed in the document that the Palestinian leadership should not give US President Donald Trump's plan a chance or even examine it. Erekat affirmed that there is no reason to wait for such a plan that would preserve the status quo as is, legitimize Israeli settlements and establish the current Palestinian self-rule.

Lavrov also said "we understand the emotions" Palestinians felt towards Trump.

He explained that Palestinians will continue to consult with Russian Federation over any coming initiative.

USÂ President Donald Trump upended decades of USA policy when he announced two months ago that the USÂ recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In excerpts of the interview published on Friday, Trump was quoted as calling his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "a very big point" of his first year in office. "Since he took office, Trump's decisions on the Palestinian cause - recognizing Jerusalem to be the capital [of Israel] and cutting aid, which was the largest package to UNRWA [UN relief agency for Palestinian refugees] - are created to liquidate the Palestinian cause".

"Russia and Putin can play an important role within the frame of an worldwide forum for peace", said Majdi al-Khalidi, diplomatic adviser to Abbas.

Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The Palestinians may decide to dissolve the existing self-governing bodies and return the responsibility over the territories and its large population to Israel, Nabil Shaathsaid.

O'Toole told the National Post that he condemns statements from Palestinian leaders "almost encouraging violence", but that Tories want to be "very deliberate and cautious" about a decision on how to move forward.

Israel took control of East Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War, annexed it, and later declared it the indivisible capital of Israel.

"There has to be assurances of respect for all the different faith communities and of the Palestinian people and their place in Jerusalem, but lets be realistic, there will never be a comprehensive peace settlement that does not recognize recognize Jerusalem as the...capital", said Kenney.

He said the USA had long acted as an "arbiter" in the region despite its close ties to Israel, citing the 1979 peace deal with Egypt as an example.

He added that the settlements "always have complicated making peace, so I think Israel has to be very careful with the settlements".

Another top official in Ramallah said that Abbas will renew his call for an internationally-backed panel to broker any talks with Israel as a substitute for a US-sponsored process during his upcoming speech before the United Nations body.

Shaath said: "so far there is really very little contact".
