German Foreign Minister: Trump Support Not Necessarily Good for Israel

German Foreign Minister: Trump Support Not Necessarily Good for Israel

Prior to the dinner, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Dani Dayan, tweeted: "As the son of a former Ambassador of Israel to Guatemala and as Israel's Consul General in NY I will be honored to participate and thank President Jimmy Morales".

When asked to name the most memorable event of his presidency, Trump was quoted as saying "I think Jerusalem was a very big point".

"The Palestinian side insists of forming a multilateral approach to overlook the peace process with the Israeli side" in an attempt to disregard the USA from its former role in the peace process, he said.

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, the Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O'Toole said Saturday, marking the first time the federal opposition has taken a clear position on the issue since U.S. President Donald Trump announced in December he would move the American embassy to the disputed city.

Asked by daily when the U.S. would present its peace plan, Trump said: "We will see what happens".

Asked whether the settlements will be part of the peace plan, Trump replied, "We will be talking about settlements".

"The settlements complicate on a different level - and it's always complicated - in making peace, so Israel needs to act with caution on the topic of settlements", Trump said.

Abdel Hafiz Nofal, Ambassador of the State of Palestine to the Russian Federation Sunday said President Mahmoud Abbas' visit to Russia is of significance as it aims to find an impartial broker to lead negotiations with Israel. After Trump's announcement there was immediate criticism from many of Canada's allies, who anxious that the move would create instability and a barrier to peaceful settlement.

"That money is on the table and that money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace", Trump said last month beside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

"I think both sides will have to make hard compromises to reach a peace agreement", Trump added. "(I) t was a very important pledge that I made and I fulfilled my pledge", he said. "Not only is Jerusalem obviously and objectively the capital of the state of Israel since its creation over 60 years ago but it is the ancient capital of the Jewish peoples", Kenney said. And I think it was a very important point. I have been thanked and in some cases not thanked, to be 100 percent honest about it. "I think we are very good partners and friends, so we can have frank conversations when we disagree".
