Trump charts new course for Mid­dle East

StarMetro Vancouver - - WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Wed­nes­day with­held clear sup­port for an in­de­pen­dent Pales­tine and de­clared he could en­dorse a one-na­tion so­lu­tion to the long and deep dis­pute be­tween Pales­tini­ans and Is­rael.

The Amer­i­can pres­i­dent, sig­nalling a new era of comity be­tween the U.S. and Is­rael af­ter rocky re­la­tions un­der Pres­i­dent Barack Obama, said he was more in­ter­ested in an agree­ment that leads to peace than in any par­tic­u­lar path to get there.

While Trump urged Ne­tanyahu to “hold off” on Jewish set­tle­ment con­struc­tion in ter­ri­tory the Pales­tini­ans claim for their fu­ture state, he of­fered un­wa­ver­ing sup­port for Is­rael.
