No mediator role for USA in Mideast

Trump has repeatedly complained that Russian Federation is not doing all he says it should to pressure North Korea to lay down its nuclear arms through stringent economic sanctions. -Israeli relations are at an all-time high, he said, and the chance to make peace "will never happen after this".

The UN has expressed concern at a United States decision to withhold more than half of a tranche of funding last month for an agency that supports Palestinian refugees.

It seems Vlad is acting as something of a go-between with the Palestinians, who are enraged by Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "There was nothing that indicated that there will be any pressure on Israel in response to the settlements", Lara Friedman, president of the Washington-based Foundation for Middle East Peace, told Newsweek.

The Trump administration has announced a major cut in aid to the Palestinians this year, notifying the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees last month that it would withhold $65 million of a planned $125 million installment.

Abbas has said that Palestine would not accept the United States as mediator in their conflict with Israel. The policy falls so far outside the global legal and political consensus that it has made the United States ineligible to play the role of sole broker in the Middle East.

Without going into detail, Trump said Israel would have "to be very careful with the settlements".

Abbas reacted in anger in December when U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and set in motion the process of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv. It wants to maintain the balance in its relationship with both Palestine and Israel, and strengthen bilateral ties with each separately.

Apparently Putin and Trump spoke by phone just today.

The White House said Trump assured Putin that the United States is "standing by to assist Russian authorities in their investigation" into why a Russian airliner on a regional flight crashed, killing everyone on board.

The president has denied his team colluded with Russian Federation, but he has repeatedly praised Putin and expressed hope they could improve relations between their two nations.

Netanyahu praised the move, while a furious Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said he would going forward.

Trump spoke today with President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation to express his condolences regarding the crash of Saratov Airlines Flight 703 on February 11.

Asked about the issue of settlements, Trump called them "something that very much complicates and always have complicated making peace".

The White House denied Netanyahu's claims, in a rare public show of disunity. The Palestinians see East Jerusalem as their future capital.

Palestinian statehood is recognised by more than 130 countries.
