Female journalists protest being 'penned in' during Pence Western Wall visit

"West Jerusalem was never actually on the table- everyone knows it is in practice now and will continue to be Israel's capital", Wilner tweeted after Trump's comments Thursday.

"I would say that the positions that Pence made clear in Israel today, and those that had been demonstrated by Trump before, show one thing - that this administration cannot be expected to offer anything that could amount to a possible re-launch of the peace talks", the Palestinian official said. I didn't set it back.

"We give them tremendous amounts, hundreds of millions of dollars".

Speaking to Pence during the dinner, the Jordanian monarch said that he regretted that his repeated warnings with regards to the U.S. position on the Holy City were shrugged by the Oval Office and a new confidence building process was necessary to allow for the PA to be again willing to be engaged by the US.

"As I stand in Abraham's 'Promised Land, ' I believe that all who cherish freedom, and seek a brighter future, should cast their eyes here to this place and marvel at what they behold", Pence said.

"That money's on the table".

In New York, the Palestinian representative to the UN, Riyad Mansour, recalled the early days of the Trump administration, when there was some hope the President's interest in making "the ultimate deal" would spur progress. It is a great proposal for the Palestinians.

President Museveni "i love Trump because he talks to Africans frankly"
She said the comment attributed to Mr Trump will not distract her from working with the government and the people of Uganda. Speaking on Tuesday, however, Museveni suggested he felt differently about the comments.

Mogherini said "the only pragmatic, realistic solution for Jerusalem has to come through direct negotiations". "It covers a lot of the things that were over the years discussed and agreed on".

In a new expression of that snub, Abbas overlapped with Pence in Jordan from Saturday evening to midday Sunday, when the Palestinian leader flew to Brussels for a meeting with European Union foreign ministers.

A Palestinian official called Trump's "language of dictation unacceptable". Most countries consider as illegal the Israeli settlements built in the territory which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war. We must keep these words in mind to gage the impact on Jewish consciousness of the US decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, now officially recognised as Israel's capital.

At the United Nations on Thursday, US Ambassador to the UNNikki Haley also criticized the Palestinians, describing a recent speech by Abbas as indulging "in outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories".

Previous US administrations have hewed to the worldwide consensus that East Jerusalem, which includes the Old City and its key religious sites, would be the capital of any Palestinian state, subject to final status negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.

He reaffirmed that "if both sides agree, the United States of America will support a two-state solution", and praised Israel for being willing to come to the peace table. "The United States can't have any role unless it retreats its decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital", spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah told Reuters by phone from Jordan. "The issue here is gender discrimination", she said. But Trump said during his meeting in Switzerland that a small version of the embassy will open next year.

Netanyahu warmly welcomed Trump's "historic decision", saying it "recognises history, recognizes a certain reality, built on the basis of truth". "It recognizes the present reality and peace can only be built on the basis of truth". He's also threatened to scrap Obama's nuclear deal with Iran unless it's thoroughly revised, an approach the Israeli leader staunchly supports.
