No mediator role for USA in Mideast

Israel Mahmoud Abbas Israel-Palestine East Jerusalem Donald Trump world news Indian Express news

Trump has repeatedly complained that Russian Federation is not doing all he says it should to pressure North Korea to lay down its nuclear arms through stringent economic sanctions. "And I am not necessarily sure that Israel is looking to make peace", he said, before adding, "So we are just going to have to see what happens". India, which has vital interests in the Gulf and enjoys good ties with the region's Muslim countries, can not afford to be seen to be politically closer to Israel at the expense of ties with Palestinians.

The two leaders will hold talks regarding Putin assuming a more supportive role following the United States' recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "I think we are very good partners and friends, so we can have frank conversations when we disagree". 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.

Abbas has refused any contact with Trump's administration since Washington's decision at the end of a year ago.

"From now on, we refuse to cooperate in any way with the U.S.in its status as a mediator, as we stand against its actions", said Abbas.

Ishtayeh stressed that the thing which the Palestinians never accept "is to go for a peace process that becomes a bridge for Israel to pass and dictate its projects of settlement expansion and devote its military occupation on the Palestinian lands". "They are not looking to make peace".

Abbas has refused to have any contact with President Donald Trump's administration since the American president officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump said that the announcement about Jerusalem had been a highlight of his first year in office.

"Israel has to be careful with settlements", Trump warned. The Palestinians suggested a multilateral worldwide mechanism or sponsorship for any upcoming peace talks with Israel.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during the joint press meet, at Ramallah, in Palestine on Saturday.

The White House said Trump assured Putin that the United States is "standing by to assist Russian authorities in their investigation" into why a Russian airliner on a regional flight crashed Sunday, killing everyone on board. Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967 and proceeded to effectively annex it, in breach of worldwide law.

A major acknowledging statement on Israel-Palestine crisis has emerged from White House.

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.

Abbas is scheduled to address the United Nations Security Council on Feb 20.
