Israeli Officials Pledge to Consider Trump Concerns on Settlements

Israeli Officials Pledge to Consider Trump Concerns on Settlements”

"The US delegation reiterated President Donald Trump's concerns regarding settlement activity in the context of moving towards a peace agreement", it said.

"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", it said.

The two delegations discussed Israeli settlement construction, following up on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington and Trump's envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt's recent visit to Israel, the statement added. Israeli and United States officials have been engaging in ongoing talks in efforts to reach an understanding on construction in the West Bank, since Trump last month asked Netanyahu to "hold back" on settlements.

After Netanyahu and Greenblatt failed to resolve the issue during the latter's Israel visit, which also included meetings with Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas, Netanyahu sent officials to Washington in order to continue negotiations.

The Trump administration has reportedly requested that Israel freeze all construction in isolated Judea and Samaria settlements, as well as put holds on building inside major settlement blocs, according to several Hebrew media reports that emerged on Wednesday.

Trump has expressed some ambivalence about a two-state solution, the mainstay of US policy for the past two decades.

The talks come after Greenblatt's visit to the region last week, which featured two long meetings with Netanyahu and a meeting with Palestinian leaders.

Traditionally, that figure has been reported separately because of differences in the type of health plan provided. OH added 700,000 people to its Medicaid rolls under the expansion, which is mostly paid for with federal funds.

Trump has expressed some ambivalence about Israel's settlements but has not publicly detailed what kind of agreement he seeks with the Israeli regime on the issue.

"The resolution calls on Israel to take steps 'to cease all settlements activities in the occupied Palestinian territory including east Jerusalem.' No such steps have been taken during the reporting period", Mladenov told the council in his first report on the implementation of the document passed in December.

"The continued incitement to violence against Jews emanating from Hamas extremists and some Palestinian groups is unacceptable and undermines trust and the prospects for peace", he said. I'm very happy with the one both parties like.

Following a meeting with Netanyahu last month, Trump urged Netanyahu to curb new housing construction while he pursued a peace deal, a position past presidents have adopted. "I can live with either one".
