Pres. Trump: Israel and Palestinians Hindering Middle East Peace Process

Pres. Trump: Israel and Palestinians Hindering Middle East Peace Process”

"I think we are very good partners and friends, so we can have frank conversations when we disagree".

I have just arrived from Japan. But as a permanent member of the Security Council, the United States nearly certainly would veto any bid to grant Palestinians full membership.

That enabled the Palestinians to join global organisations and the worldwide Criminal Court, though they did not become a full United Nations member state. They have the right to veto our application for a full membership even now, when the General Assembly recognized by an impressive majority that we are a state and have the right for membership. We will continue to try, and let the United States veto us further.

"Maybe the world will get exhausted of Americans vetoing our membership", Shaath said.

"There are contacts, but they are very limited". After all we have a mission in Washington which the Americans threatened to close but did not close.

Palestine will continue to seek a full membership in the United Nations inspite of the USA veto which seems even more inevitable under the current administration, Nabil Shaath, the foreign affairs adviser of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said. And I am not necessarily sure that Israel is looking to make peace.

"But we do not have a political dialogue". There are matters that continue to work - visas, and trade, and many aspects did not stop.

Abu Zeid believes that the U.S. administration's actions and decisions confirm that the United States has a pro-Israeli bias.

Gabriel also met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, where he said there was no alternative to a Palestinian state alongside Israel and expressed reservations over Trump's recent moves. "We are against all this", Shaath explained.

Palestinian President Mehmoud Abbas had condemned the move, saying it disqualified the United States from playing the role of arbiter.

"The peace process is going through tough times", he added.

Mr Netanyahu visited Russian Federation on January 29 and along with Mr Putin attended a memorial ceremony at the Jewish museum in Moscow for the victims of Nazi camps.

The Trump administration has claimed that Trump's declaration has made an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal more likely.

"By the way, even at the Madrid conference of 1991 it was decided that Moscow would become the venue for the second worldwide forum".

"We never have and never will reject negotiations", said Abbas. "The Palestinian Authority needs to adopt a clear position and trigger a major uprising involving all social components in a militant program that would be agreed upon at the national level".

One of the detainees is 17-year-old Mustafa al-Badn from the town of Tuqu' in the city of Bethlehem; he said Israeli forces raided his family home at 1:30 A.M., detained him and took him to Etzion prison.

Over the decades, Palestinians have been seeking 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.
