Jerusalem 'high point' of first year in office, Trump says

Share

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

"Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a unsafe development that places the United States at a position of bias in favor of the occupation and the violation of worldwide law and resolutions", read the statement.

Speaking to the Sheldon Adelson-owned Israel Hayom, Trump noted the December 6 recognition as a highlight. "The capital, having Jerusalem be your great capital, was a very important thing to a lot of people", said Trump according to an excerpt released Friday ahead of full publication in the conservative Hebrew-language daily. "But it was an extremely important promise - and I fulfilled it", Trump said.

The United States said Syrian pro-government forces initiated an attack on the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Turkish officials say the leaders of Turkey, Russia and Iran will meet in Istanbul to discuss peace efforts for Syria.

"Friedman's recommendations and advice, which do not aim to achieve a just peace on the basis of global legitimacy, are what led to this crisis in American-Palestinian relations", Abu Rdainah said. "All the other presidents failed to keep their promise, despite the fact that they promised it during the course of their election campaigns". Since taking office, Trump has distanced himself somewhat from the two-state solution to the conflict that envisions a Palestinian state alongside Israel. He showed support for Trump recently when he announced that Guatemala would move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, following the same announcement by the American president.

He added "I think both sides will have to make hard compromises to reach a peace agreement".
