Putin meets Abbas, conveys greetings from Trump

Putin said during the meeting with the Palestinian leader that he had just spoken by telephone with U.S. President Donald Trump.

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. "So we are just going to have to see what happens".

Almost three months after Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the US president has said he is "not necessarily sure" Israel wants peace with Palestinians. "US officials should be strongly warning Israel that such a move would be unacceptable". "I think we are very good partners and friends, so we can have frank conversations when we disagree". The PM slipped on Monday, reporting on informing the White House about the sovereignty talks without first discussing it with Jason Goldblatt, Jared Kushner, or, at least, Ambassador David Friedman. The UN voted to condemn Trump administration's decision overwhelmingly.

"The fact that Prime Minister Netanyahu is now openly contemplating annexation of Israeli settlements is beyond risky", Jeremy Ben-Ami, President of the pro-Israel peace group J Street, said in a statement. "As for specific boundaries, I would support what both sides agreed to", Trump said.

A senior Russian delegation met Palestinian officials in West Bank city of Ramallah after US President Donald Trump's move on Jerusalem last December.

Israeli media noted that a phone call between Netanyahu and Putin coincided with an end to Israel's largest assault on Iranian and Syrian regime assets in Syria in several years.

In the interview, Trump said that his recognition of Jerusalem as the country's capital was one of the highlights of his presidency thus far.

Trump spoke with Putin to "express his condolences regarding the crash of Saratov Airlines Flight 703 on February 11", the White House said, offering its account of the event.

The status of Jerusalem is the centre of Palestine's conflict with Israel.

Modi was accompanied by Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamadallah at the Arafat mausoleum before he joined President Abbas to receive the guard of honour and hold talks. According to this line, Israel would have to withdraw from the West Bank and East Jerusalem and either pull out the Jewish settlements or do a land-swap with the Palestinians as part of a final agreement.
