In meeting with Russia's Putin, President Abbas calls for new peace mechanism

In meeting with Russia's Putin, President Abbas calls for new peace mechanism

"The Russian leader noted the depth and quality of the Russian-Palestinian relations and suggested the talks be focused on the situation in the region and bilateral ties", TASS reported, noting that Putin commented that the situation in the region "is far from what we want to see".

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.

On Saturday, President Trump was quoted as saying in a teaser portion of the interview that his December 6th recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital was the high point of his first year in office.

"By taking Jerusalem off the table I wanted to make it clear that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and as for specific boundaries, I would support what both sides agreed to", Trump told newspaper Israel Hayom on Sunday.

'I just spoke with American President Trump, ' Putin told Abbas yesterday before continuing the talks behind closed doors.

"Given the atmosphere created by the United States' actions, we.refuse any cooperation with the United States as a mediator", Abbas said.

Trump warned Netanyahu's government against Israeli settlements getting in the way of negotiations.

Israel-Palestine discussions have been further strained recently after Israel shot down what it said was an Iranian drone that had entered its territory from Syria over the weekend.

The call between the two leaders - who are at the center of an FBI investigation into Moscow's alleged meddling in the 2016 United States election - took place after a plane crashed minutes after takeoff from Domodedovo airport, killing all 71 people on board.

"I think what we are seeing here is not the end of the USA role as an honest broker because it never was an honest broker", she told Al Jazeera.

The proof of that was our invitation to Moscow with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu past year.

The United Nations General Assembly responded to that decision by passing a resolution that condemned Trump's controversial move.

The White House denied Netanyahu's claims, in a rare public show of disunity.

Palestinian statehood is recognized by more than 130 countries.

The leaders also speak about tensions on the Korean peninsula and in the Middle East.
