Don't sell 'dangerous arms' to terror supporters, Iran tells Trump

Don't sell 'dangerous arms' to terror supporters, Iran tells Trump

"We have a rare opportunity to bring stability and peace in this region, defeat terror and create a future of peace", Trump said after speeches from Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu upon arriving.

Trump referenced President Barack and Michelle Obama's trip to Riyadh in January 2015 in which the First Lady chose to forgo a headscarf.

In his first foreign speech, Trump on Sunday urged Muslim leaders to take a stand against violence committed in the name of religion, describing the struggle against extremism as a "battle between good and evil".

Trump, 70, is now on his first foreign trip since becoming president. "And if you both are willing, we're going to make a deal".

Trump's remarks came after Netanyahu expressed his willingness to make peace with the Palestinians. He has taken a softer position on the contentious issue of Israeli settlements, suggesting that their expansion rather than their existence might hamper the search for peace.

When his 3-pointer splashed with a half-second left in the quarter, the Cavs led 87-80. "Just expect him to be better in Game 4". But we definitely understand that this (Boston) team is not going to quit, they're going to fight, they're going to compete".

Israel considers the entire city to be its capita while the global community says the future of east Jerusalem, claimed by the Palestinians, must be resolved through negotiations. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley declared the site part of Israel, while U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Monday dodged the question.

One point of contention: the fate of east Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war. The worldwide community does not recognise Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem and maintain their embassies in Tel Aviv.

Media captionWhy aren't the Israelis and Palestinians talking? Yet Trump may still need to engage in some delicate diplomacy following revelations that he disclosed highly classified intelligence Israel obtained about the Islamic State group with top Russian officials, without Israel's permission. After years of butting heads with Trump's predecessor, Netanyahu celebrated a new American president's arrival as a moment of hope in the stalled peace talks between Israel and Palestinians. Still, White House officials had downplayed the prospects for a breakthrough on this trip, saying it was important to manage their ambitions as they wade into terrain that has tripped up more experienced diplomats.

According to USA Today, Donald Trump said: "Saudi Arabia and numerous countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays". The incident has raised questions about the confidentiality of secret intelligence passed to the United States by its closest Middle Eastern ally.

The president then meets with Palestinian leaders, but officials said he will offer no specific peace plan.
