Trump Tells Putin 'Now Is Time' To Work For Israeli-Palestinian Peace

(Worthy News) - U.S. President Donald Trump has told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that "now is the time to work toward an enduring peace" between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the White House says.

Trump's statement came in a phone conversation on February 12 ahead of a meeting in Moscow between Putin and Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas. Putin told Abbas before the meeting that he had spoken with Trump about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Putin said the discussion centered on finding a "common approach" to bridge the differences between Israel and the Palestinians.

The "situation is far from what we want to see," Putin said, adding that he had "always supported the Palestinian people." [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]
