"Our policy has always been that we will prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons", he said. We're looking at it very, very strongly.
There is skepticism in the United States and Middle East over the chances for restarting Israeli-Palestinian diplomacy. "This is our solemn promise to you, to Israel, and to the world".
Haley also mentioned how she called UN Secretary-General António Guterres and told him to withdraw a UN agency report that described Israel as an apartheid state. -Israeli talks ended last Thursday without agreement.
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat met with Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump's special representative for worldwide negotiations, at the White House on Friday.
"Or how about when President Trump named David Friedman to represent the United States of America in Israel?" "Israel is committed to working with President Trump to advance peace with the Palestinians and with all our neighbors".
Dermer was rendered persona non grata at the White House after his role in arranging for Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech before a joint session of Congress on the Iran issue without the approval of President Obama.
She noted that USA objections sank the appointment of a senior Palestinian statesman, Salaam Fayyad, to a United Nations post, and that she had successfully lobbied for the retraction of a United Nations report likening Israel's treatment of Palestinians to apartheid. "The Israeli delegation made clear that Israel's intent going forward is to adopt a policy regarding settlement activity that takes those concerns into consideration". As you'll hear tomorrow night, Ambassador Haley is already fighting tirelessly to end the one-sided actions of the United Nations that unfairly target Israel.
The Trump administration has told Israel to build within the boundaries of existing settlements and not to establish new communities, according to the sources. He also expressed confidence in a U.S. President Trump and I stand with Israel for the same reason every freedom-loving American stands with Israel - because her cause is our cause.
The US-Israeli agreement under discussion is expected to be announced with a set of economic and development projects in the Palestinian territories with an emphasis on Gaza, the officials said.
