A White House official said the deal will work to increase Saudi Arabia's defense capabilities, bolstering equipment and services in the face of extremist terrorist groups and Iran. He said that if Christians, Muslims and Jews join forces, "peace in this world is possible, including peace between Israel and the Palestinians".

US policy doesn't hold that the city is part of Israel, but the White House put "Jerusalem, Israel", on its website Monday, without offering an explanation. Tillerson referred to the visit as "a moment in time" and suggested that the USA would take a more active role in the future in brokering a deal if both sides make serious commitments.

Iranian-backed forces have been fighting Islamic State militants in Iraq and support the government of President Bashar Assad in its battle against Sunni fighters in Syria.

Trump is seeking to ease concerns that his policies wouldn't be as beneficial to Israel as once believed.

While Israeli officials cheered Trump's election, some are now wary of the tougher line he has taken on settlements: urging restraint but not calling for a full halt to construction.

All of that should come as no surprise, given whom Melania is married to.
