Trump questions if Israel 'is interested in making peace'

US President Donald Trump called his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Monday to offer his condolences following a deadly crash of a Russian plane.

"I just spoke with American President Trump", Putin told Abbas before continuing the talks behind closed doors.

They say the U.S.is not an honest broker and have pre-emptively rejected any peace proposal presented by the Trump administration.

On Sunday, the raucous crowd that brandished large American flags, did the wave and honked on vuvuzelas at a crowded U.S. No one talks about the low moments - the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry.

When President Trump made a decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, he put the Palestinians in an impossible position and joined Israel in a "blame game". "Here we count on India, with its status as a great power, its historical role in the non-aligned movement and in global forums", Abbas said.

"We are committed to taking care of the cause and well-being of Palestinian people", Modi said. Israel has annexed East Jerusalem and declared the entire city as its capital, a move not recognized by the worldwide community.

In response to Trump's remarks that the Palestinians "are not interested" in the peace process, a senior Palestinian official said Monday the Palestinians are the most benefiting side out of a serious peace process in the Middle East.

Asked by editor-in-chief Boaz Bismouth when the United States would present its peace plan, Mr Trump said: "We will see what happens".

Palestinian protest icon Ahed Tamimi is to go on trial before an Israeli military court for slapping and punching two Israeli soldiers in December in a case that has drawn wide criticism of Israel for prosecuting the teenager. The Israeli settlement policies, which gathered pace following Trump's ascension to office, are widely supported by the U.S. ambassador to the country, David Friedman. In fact, just last month, the United States withheld $65 million in Palestinian aid after Trump tweeted Palestinians give "no appreciation or respect" to Washington. But experts say it is unlikely that Trump's comments will be accompanied by policies that would pressure Israel to stop building settlements.

Palestinians seek diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which is partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip.

The second day is allocated for expounding investment opportunities in Iraq and chances of the private sector there. Iraq reopened to foreign investment after 2003, with most spent on increasing its oil and natural gas production.

Abbas has appealed to the global community, including countries in Europe and the Arab world, to demand a say in future negotiations, but has so far failed to secure commitments. Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967 and proceeded to effectively annex it, in breach of worldwide law.
