Vladimir Putin meets Palestinian leader, conveys greetings from Trump

Trump Suggests Kushner's Middle East Peace Negotiations Are Doomed, Warns Israeli Settlements Are an Obstacle to

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

"The Palestinian side insists of forming a multilateral approach to overlook the peace process with the Israeli side", Abbas advisor, Majdi Khalidi, told Voice of Palestine in an interview.

The Palestinians have rejected the US sponsorship of peace talks with Israel in the wake of Washington's decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in early December.

"The situation in the region is far from the one that we would like to see", he said, adding that Russian Federation has always supported the Palestinian people.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas visits Russia on Monday in a bid to secure Russian President Vladimir Putin's support following Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Abbas has refused any contact with Trump's administration since Washington's decision at the end of previous year.

U.S. woman wakes up with British accent
Foreign accent syndrome (known as FAS - it has a acronym so it must be legit!) is allegedly a real thing that happens to people. Myers also has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a condition that causes bruising and painful joints - and it turned her accent British.

"We state that from now on we refuse to cooperate in any form with the U.S.in its status of a mediator, as we stand against its actions", Abbas told Putin.

"We understand very well worries in many governments throughout the region regarding what they see, what they don't see".

The White House said Trump repeated his belief that it is time to work toward a lasting peace agreement.

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.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said he and Tillerson had "discussed how to reach a solution for the Israel-Palestine conflict on the basis of a two state solution and the importance of maintaining U.S. efforts to reach this final settlement".

In an interview with Reuters last month, Trump accused Russian Federation of helping North Korea evade sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council, saying that "Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea".

Israeli media noted that a phone call between Netanyahu and Putin coincided with an end to Israel's largest assault on Iranian and Syrian regime assets in Syria in several years.

Putin mentioned the call with Trump at the start of his meeting with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas on Monday.

The flight crashed Sunday near Ramenskoe in Moscow's suburbs, according to the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations. Egypt said the USA must restart talks between Israel and Palestine, according to Palestine's official WAFA news agency.

Trump White House has been less publicly critical of Israel's settlement building than previous administrations.

Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of their future state.

He is also looking to get backing for an global mechanism for Middle East peace talks to supplant the United States as the leading player.
