President Trump to Meet With Palestinian President in Bethlehem

Freda Brock | 19 May, 2017, 01:55

But while Trump's meeting with Netanyahu signaled an era of warmer US-Israel relations than had existed under President Barack Obama, Trump also slightly moderated his stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the unequivocal support he promised Israel during the campaign.

U.S. State Secretary Rex Tillerson suggested on Sunday that moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv might not impact the Trump's peace-making efforts.

Top officials at the State Department, Department of Defense and the USA intelligence community are urging the White House not to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, warning that such a decision would be harmful to the peace process and carry broader regional risks, a senior administration official and several U.S. officials told CNN.

In response, a statement from the Prime Minister's office read: "Israel's position has been stated many times to the American administration and to the world".

It later annexed East Jerusalem, and in 1980, Israel unilaterally declared "reunited" Jerusalem as its capital.

Israel occupied east Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the global community.

Since taking office in January, Trump has shown signs of shelving his campaign pledge to move the embassy from Tel Aviv, while vowing to do what is necessary to clinch a Middle East peace agreement.

Whether they were rested or ragged, facing the Cleveland Cavaliers was going to be an uphill fight for the Boston Celtics. The Cavaliers led 30-19 after the first quarter and expanded the lead to 22 points (61-39) at the break.

In an unusual move, Netanyahu also partially released the minutes of a meeting he had with Trump in Washington in February, showing he had pressed the new president to move the embassy.

He will meet Israeli and Palestinian leaders as part of his first foreign trip later this week.

European and Arab allies of the United States have also advised against moving the embassy, saying it could lead to unrest.

The Trump administration disavowed that official's view.

Israel wants the White House to explain why a U.S. diplomat preparing President Donald Trump's visit to Jerusalem said Judaism's holy Western Wall in its old city is part of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, an Israeli official said on Monday.

Trump is to begin his first trip overseas as president on May 19, visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel (and the West Bank city of Bethlehem), and the Vatican before jetting to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels and the G7 summit in Sicily. Mort Klein, President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), said on Monday that he is very disappointed with Trump's handling of the issue. The prolonged occupation has been widely condemned, with Israeli settlements considered illegal under the global law. But two employees of the PMO's public relations department accompanied the preparatory tour to see if the Americans needed any help with arranging media coverage, such as preparing places for journalists and photographers or arranging for live broadcasts of Trump's visit to the holy site. "It will make them understand that Israel will remain forever and that its capital will be Jerusalem".
