In an address to a joint meeting of Congress moments ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed negotiating a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine, saying "President Abbas must do what I have done. I stood before my people, and I told you it wasn't easy, I stood before my people and I said 'I will accept a Palestinian state.' It's time for President Abbas to stand before his people and say 'I will accept a Jewish state.'" Netanyahu said that act would convince the Israeli people that Israel has a true partner for peace and that the Israeli people would then be prepared to make far-reaching compromises. Netanyahu maintained that Israel would not return to the 1967 borders, saying,"We'll be generous about the size of the future Palestinian state, but as President Obama said, "The border will be different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967." Israel will not return to the indefensible boundaries of 1967." For more from the Fox News Insider, check out http://foxnewsinsider.com.

When it comes to the peace issue, President Obama unfairly puts the entire onus on Israel to act because he views Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as 'too weak,' said Dennis Ross, author of Doomed to Succeed. 'If you say they are too weak to criticize then they are too weak to be accountable, they are too weak to be responsible, they are too weak to have a state,' said Ross. 'I have no problem with being prepared to criticize the Israelis when they warrant it. I do have a problem when we are prepared to only criticize the Israelis and never criticize the Palestinians.' Ross is the Counselor and Davidson Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and a Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at Georgetown. He was the director of policy planning in the State Department for George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton’s Middle East Peace envoy, and a special assistant to the president under Barack Obama. In his book, Ross said there has been an institutional bias against Israel in the U.S. State Department since the country’s founding in 1948. According to Ross, this is partly because most experience for U.S. Ambassadors comes from being posted in the Arab world. 'There is an irony in this administration, at least in the second term, that the White House has been more combative in its view of Israel than the State Department,' said Ross.

President Mahmoud Abbas said that Palestine is entering the "most dangerous phase" in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, speaking at the 30th Central Council session of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) held in Ramallah on Sunday. "The phase we are going through may be the most dangerous phase that the Palestinian people have ever experienced," the Palestinian President said, adding that "we are facing a historical moment." "Settlements from the first stone until the last stone are illegal, and do what they want, this is our land they live in," Abbas added. ______________________________ SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine (Arabic): "The phase we are going through may be the most dangerous phase that the Palestinian people have ever experienced. We are facing a historical moment." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine (Arabic): "We will stay stead fasting on our land, adhering to our rights, holding in our principles, and no power on the land can affect us. We will not commit the [Israeli] crime of 1948 and we will not commit the [Israeli] crime of 1967. What happened in these two dates will not happen again." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine (Arabic): "Who says Jerusalem is a capital for two states means that he is saying that Jerusalem is a capital for Israel. And Abu Dis is a capital for us, with all respect to Abu Dis and Qalandia. No, Jerusalem, which was occupied in 1976 by a metre and a centimetre, is our capital." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine (Arabic): "Settlements from the first stone until the last stone are illegal, and do what they want, this is our land they live in." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine (Arabic): "We have already taken decisions in our previous council sessions regarding to America, the occupation and Hamas movement and it is time to implement them because they did not give us a way for reconciliation, and left us no path to reconciliation, agreement, etc. We can no longer bear it, but they are dangerous decisions." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine (Arabic): "You swallowed Jerusalem and moved your embassy there. You ended the right of the refugees and you left the UNRWA and you rudely said that the number of the refugees is forty thousand. How can this be correct, shame on you. The refugees who left Palestine in 1948 and in 1949 were 950,000 and they are now six million. You are saying 45,000 to say that the cause of the refugees has ended and we say that the cause of the refugees has not ended yet." ______________________________ Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Video ID: 20181028-037 Video on Demand: http://www.ruptly.tv Contact: email@example.com Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ruptly Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Ruptly

Cutaway assembled cameramen 9. Siam walks out STORYLINE: Ismail Haniyeh, the Palestinian Prime Minister, arrived in Gaza City on Friday for an emergency session of the Hamas-led Cabinet to discuss the escalating unrest in the region. Earlier in the day, Hamas and Fatah-allied gunmen fought in the streets of Gaza City and Ramallah, as violence between the rival factions deepened. It follows Thursday night's incident at Rafah crossing when gunmen shot at Haniyeh's convoy. Haniyeh, who is from Hamas, told reporters that the meeting was to "discuss the latest security developments in the Gaza Strip and estimate what can be done by the Ministry of the Interior." Palestinian Interior Minister Said Siam, also from Hamas, added on Friday that certain members of the government had decided to "reject the invitation sent to ministers to attend the speech of President Mahmoud Abbas tomorrow, in protest over these disastrous and bloody events." President Abbas of Fatah, was to address the Palestinians on Saturday on his plans for ending the impasse and was expected to threaten early elections. A call for new elections, which Hamas says are illegal, would likely further inflame the situation. Earlier in Gaza City, masked Hamas gunmen battled with Fatah-allied police near a security post in the middle of the city, sending civilians running for cover. The Gaza battle, a block away from the home of Fatah strongman and former security chief Mohammed Dahlan, came hours after Hamas accused him of orchestrating Thursday's attack on Haniyeh at the Rafah border terminal. The violence at Rafah on Thursday erupted after Israel temporarily barred Haniyeh from returning to Gaza after a tour of Muslim countries. Angry Hamas militants stormed the border terminal and engaged in a gunbattle with security forces stationed there who are loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah. After Haniyeh finally crossed, unidentified men began firing toward him in an attack that killed one of his bodyguards and wounded his son. In all, 27 people were wounded in the gunbattles at the border terminal. Factional infighting escalated after Abbas declared earlier this month that his efforts to form a coalition government with Hamas, which controls the Cabinet and parliament, had failed.

Israelis voiced concern on Tuesday that US President Barack Obama's efforts to reach a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear impasse will eventually ease sanctions against Teheran. During a meeting between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in the US on Monday, Netanyahu implored the US President to keep punishing sanctions in place against Tehran. "I'm nervous about it and I would prefer to see them really take a position of power and force the Iranians to do what they need to do," said Rachel Franco, a Jerusalem resident who spends part of the year in Miami, Florida. "I don't believe 'Trust me', I don't believe that," she said. The two men met three days after Obama's historic phone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, which marked the first direct conversation between a US and Iranian leader in more than three decades. While the election of Rouhani, a more moderate-sounding cleric, has been viewed optimistically by the Obama administration, Netanyahu has dismissed the new Iranian leader's outreach as a "smiley campaign" aimed at buying Tehran more time to pursue building a bomb. "Israel is more dubious, Israel is afraid that this is yet another deception by the Iranian regime," said Itamar Rabinovich, former Israeli Ambassador to the US. "I think that the meeting between the Prime Minister and the President did not resolve all those differences but it narrowed the differences and I think by now, both men found a way of working with each other so the bottom line is that it was a good meeting in Washington," he said. While the Iranian issue dominated the conversation between Netanyahu and Obama, Vice President Joe Biden said on Monday this moment may offer the best opportunity for the Israeli-Palestinian peace, because both sides want a moderate, sustainable outcome. Israel and Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, recently kicked off a new round of US-brokered peace talks aimed at establishing the terms of a Palestinian state. In Gaza, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said: "Abbas started the negotiations on his own, without our consent, we are against the return to negotiations." Zuhri said he was confident the talks will fail, and dismissed "Obama's support of the negotiations".

(24 Dec 2017) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Palestinians "do not want a resolution" in the Middle East, after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he is no longer interested in entertaining a US-brokered peace process. During a Cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, Netanyahu added that Israel was not the "root of the conflict" in the Middle East," and instead blamed the "terror" spread by Iran and radical Islam. Abbas has urged Europe to play a stronger role in peace efforts, insisting he'll no longer accept any US plans for Mideast peace because of the recent decision by US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

A secret 36-page memo based on Obama administration statements indicates that the president warned Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to start direct talks with Israel or risk losing American support for the recognition of the PA as a country. The Associated Press reported it has possession of the document, under the letterhead of the Palestinian Negotiations Department and which indicates the warning came from President Barack Obama via U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell. The document warns, "Abbas needs to accept direct talks now if he wants President Obama's help in facilitating statehood." The memo says that PA advisers are in favor of rejecting the American ultimatum. Abbas told PA media on Sunday that he is resisting pressure from "the entire world" to concede his long-stated condition that Netanyahu extend the 10-month building freeze that expires in late September.

US President Barack Obama said in an interview broadcast Tuesday that Israel risks losing “credibility” over Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s stance on the creation of a Palestinian state. Obama made the comments to an Israeli television station in response to a question about Netanyahu’s comments regarding the establishment of a Palestinian state before and after March elections. Netanyahu sparked international concern when he ruled out the establishment of a Palestinian state while campaigning for the 17 March general election but later backtracked on the comments. On Sunday, Netanyahu said he was committed to the establishment of a Palestinian state, calling on the Palestinian leadership to return to negotiations unconditionally. Obama however said Netanyahu’s statements on the subject after the election have had “so many caveats, so many conditions, that it is not realistic to think that those conditions would be met any time in the near future”. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/03/barack-obama-says-israel-risks-losing-credibility-over-palestinian-state-stance http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Zoom in and pull out of Mubarak and Abbas speaking 3. Mid of cameramen 4. Abbas walking to news conference 5. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President: "We have agreed with the Americans that we should tackle and discuss two main issues, which are security and borders, and the Americans have said that if progress occurred in dealing with those two issues then it would be possible to engage in direct negotiations with the Israelis.'' 6. Mid of news conference 7. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President: "We have informed the Americans that lifting the siege is a must, meaning that the crossing with Israel should be opened for the transportation of all of Gaza's needs, and we have also told the Americans that there should be a committee of investigation (into the Israel flotilla attack) in line with what the UN Security Council has demanded." 8. Wide of Abbas leaving briefing room STORYLINE Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had a meeting on Tuesday with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, to review efforts on lifting the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip. After three years of cooperating in the Israeli blockade of Gaza, Egypt has said that it will leave its border with the Palestinian territory open indefinitely for humanitarian aid and restricted travel. Following a meeting with Mubarak, Abbas told reporters at a news conference that Palestinian authorities had emphasised to US President Barack Obama's administration that "lifting the siege is a must, meaning that the crossing with Israel should be opened for the transportation of all of Gaza's needs." He also said that once the two main issues - security and borders - had been tackled, the Palestinians would be able to "engage in direct negotiations with the Israelis.'' Egypt's decision to ease the restrictions erected by Israel to isolate and punish Hamas came after a deadly Israeli naval raid on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza. The move restores a link to the outside world for at least some of Gaza's 1.5 (m) million Palestinians. Israel has been increasingly isolated internationally and has come under withering criticism for its 31 May raid on the flotilla, including the passenger ship Mavi Marmara, in which nine Turkish activists were killed. On Monday, Israel's Cabinet gave final approval for an official investigation into the navy's bloody assault. The Obama administration and the UN have urged Israel to involve foreigners in the investigation, while Turkey and others have demanded an inquiry without Israeli involvement. Abbas rejected Israel's planned investigation, even though it was to include two international observers, and said the plan, approved by Israel's Cabinet, fell short of UN Security Council demands. "There should be a committee of invesigation in line with what the UN Security Council has demanded," Abbas told the media. Widespread outrage in the Arab and Muslim world over the flotilla raid has prompted Arab leaders to join the growing international demands for opening Gaza's borders. Israel claims the blockade is necessary to stop weapons reaching Hamas rulers of Gaza, but critics say it has failed to dent support for the Islamic militants and has left 1.5 (m) million Gazans more deeply mired in poverty.

Abbas is expected to meet with both President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during his stay, according to a Russian state news agency. This will Abbas' tenth visit to Russia and talks are expect to centre around Russo-Palestinian relations, Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and the broader situation in the Middle East and North Africa. Russia is an important player in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in part because it is a member of the so-called 'Quartet of Mediators' that also includes the United States, the European Union and the United Nations. Of the four, Russia is seen as the most sympathetic to the Palestinians but has little sway over the group because the US has traditionally claimed the dominant role in mediating between Israelis and the Palestinians. The Palestinians have refused to negotiate with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while he continues to build Jewish settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, areas captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war.

Wide of media briefing, zoom in to Abbas and Yudhoyono embracing and shaking hands at end of briefing STORYLINE: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas expressed confidence on Monday that a solution would be found to the Middle East crisis before the end of 2008. Speaking after talks with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Jakarta, he also stressed the importance of reconciliation with Hamas. Abbas, who arrived in Indonesia on Sunday, is seeking support from Muslim allies in Asia ahead of a US-hosted conference involving Israel and the Palestinians. The gathering, to be held in November or December, will seek a joint declaration outlining a way for the two sides to return to the negotiating table after seven years of bloodshed and diplomatic paralysis. Washington hopes it also will relaunch negotiations to create a Palestinian state. Abbas said the Palestinians were in "serious talks" with the Israeli side ahead of the scheduled meeting in the US later this year. "Then we can meet to discuss the details which we hope will be finalised by the end of 2008 and will culminate in a peace agreement between us and the Israelis," Abbas told reporters after discussing ways to achieve a peaceful, lasting resolution to the Middle East crisis with Yudhoyono. He also said Hamas, which he expelled from the Palestinian government after Islamic militants violently seized control of the Gaza Strip in June, "is a part of the Palestinian people and cannot be separated. Nobody denies that."

Obama, Turkey and Israel -- More Than Meets the Eye President Obama's visit in Israel was a resounding PR success, judging by various indicators of Israeli public opinion, but as the dust settles, it becomes very clear that the visit was also an impressive diplomatic achievement. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-josef-olmert/obama-turkey-and-israel-m_b_2945115.html Ben Zygier, 'Mossad Spy', Spilled Secrets To Hezbollah, Report Says A man identified by media as an Australian-Israeli Mossad agent and found hanged in a Tel Aviv jail had passed secrets to Hezbollah before his death, an influential German magazine reported Sunday.News weekly Der Spiegel said Ben Zygier, a man known as "Prisoner X" who died in 2010 in an allegedly suicide-proof cell, had handed tips to the Lebanese militant group that led to the arrest of at least two people spying for Israel.After conducting its own "internal investigations", the report found that Zygier had started working for Mossad in 2003, investigating European companies doing business with Iran and Syria.It said Zygier -- who was raised in Melbourne but moved to Israel about a decade before his death -- was ordered back to Israel in 2007 because his bosses were unhappy with his work.In 2008 he took a leave of absence, Spiegel said, and returned to Melbourne to finish his studies after trying to recruit new agents for Israel in a bid to restore his standing with his bosses.In the process he came in contact with Hezbollah supporters, Spiegel said, and while trying to convince them to work for Mossad, disastrously spilled highly sensitive information.This included the names of Lebanese nationals Ziad al-Homsi and Mustafa Ali Awadeh, who were arrested in May 2009 on charges of spying for Israel and later sentenced to several years of hard labour.The report said Israeli security authorities had told Zygier after his arrest that they wanted to make an example of him and demanded a prison sentence of at least 10 years.Zygier was found dead in his cell in December 2010 at the age of 34.

(8 Jan 2018) Norway's Foreign Minister Ine Marie Eriksen Soreide held talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Monday. After the meeting Soreide spoke to reporters, reiterating her country's support for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians "when the timing is right". She said US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was "problematic", and that she would be heading to the US on Tuesday. "I will bring impressions with me both from the Israeli and the Palestinian side here," she said, adding that she felt there existed on both sides "a will to talk and a will to negotiate." On Sunday, Soreide met in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum.

" 8. Wide of Hatoyama and Abbas leaving news conference STORYLINE: Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama met visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday in Tokyo, to discuss the stalled Middle East peace process. According to Kyodo News Agency, Hatoyama expressed Japan''s support for the Palestinian leader''s efforts to seek peace with Israel through negotiations. The peace process has been stalled for more than a year since Israel launched a large-scale offensive on the Gaza Strip at the end of 2008. Abbas has said he would not return to the negotiating table unless Israel halts settlement building. The Israeli government has so far frozen construction only in the West Bank, and for a limited period of ten months, and negotiations have not yet been renewed. Abbas arrived in Japan on Sunday, and visited Hiroshima, where the US dropped one of two atomic bombs at the end of World War II. He last visited Japan in May 2005. Abbas will spend four days in Japan, during which he was also scheduled on Tuesday to meet Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada and the heads of both houses of parliament, according to Kyodo, before heading to South Korea on Wednesday on the next leg of his Asian tour. Kyodo said Japan had provided more than 1 (b) billion US dollars in aid to the Palestinians since 1993.

(18 Dec 2017) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Monday that he will no longer accept the US as a Mideast mediator, using some of his harshest rhetoric since US President Donald Trump recognised contested Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Abbas told senior Palestinian officials on Monday that "a crazy person wouldn't accept" such a role for Washington after Trump's announcement two weeks ago. The Palestinians seek east Jerusalem, captured and annexed by Israel in 1967, as a future capital. Trump's announcement was seen as siding with Israel's government, which says it won't give up any part of the city, home to major Jewish, Muslim and Christian shrines. Under a long-standing international consensus, the fate of Jerusalem is to be determined in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Abbas has become sharply critical of Washington, after years of courting the US. Earlier on Monday Abbas met with the heads of the Christian churches in Jerusalem to wish them Merry Christmas ahead of the Christmas celebrations next week.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas stated that “we stand with Saudi Arabia in everything,” potentially alluding to the execution of Saudi Shia clerk Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr during a presser in Bethlehem, Wednesday. Speaking at a press conference held at the Presidential Palace, Abbas warned the world of the growing dangers of so-called terrorism, saying “I do not want for our young men to feel like there is no way out, and that there is no other solution.” SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President (Arabic): "We have warned people many, many times of what is happening on Palestinian land. Watch out, neighbours, watch out world, the conflict is turning into a religious conflict, and this is a very dangerous thing which will not be containable later on. Stay away from al-Aqsa, stay away from the holy locations." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President (Arabic): "I want you to be careful, this is a whole nation. We do not want the nation to feel forced, we do not want for it to despair. I do not want for our young men to feel like there is no way out, and that there is no other solution. Beware of this!" SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President (Arabic): "Because we have always been against radicalism, against violence, against terrorism. The proof of this is when our Saudi brothers called for an anti-terror coalition, we were the first to get on board. We stand with them. We stand by stopping terrorism. And by the way, we stand with Saudi Arabia. We stand with Saudi Arabia in everything it did, because we think what Saudi Arabia did is the right thing, and thus we stand with it. No shame in this, we stand with Saudi Arabia." SOT, Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President (Arabic): "This is why the solution we are offering is essentially what will end radicalism."

(22 Dec 2017) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday said he'll no longer accept any US plans for Mideast peace because of the Trump administration's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. His comments on Friday in Paris followed the UN General Assembly resolution denouncing President Donald Trump's decision. After talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, Abbas urged France and Europe to play a stronger role in peace efforts instead. Macron was careful not to take sides, saying "the American mistake was to want to unilaterally manage from afar a situation whose solution is in the hands of the Israelis and Palestinians".

SOUNDBITE (Arabic): Bashar Assad, Syrian President: "Syria is perfectly ready to cooperate with any Arab or non-Arab efforts on this issue (Lebanese crisis) under the condition that any initiative must be based on the principle of national Lebanese consensus." 20. Wide of meeting STORYLINE: Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday said that peace was the only way for Israel to gain security in the middle east, during his opening speech at a deeply divided Arab summit in Damascus. "And peace will not be achieved except through the complete withdrawal from all occupied Arab territories and through restoration of all rights," continued Assad. Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa proposed that Arab foreign ministers meet in mid-2008 to evaluate the Israeli-Arab peace process. Syria has been pushing Arab countries to set a time limit for Israel to accept the Arab peace initiative, which was first formulated by Saudi Arabia then approved by all Arab countries in 2002. But so far the summit has resisted doing so. The proposal offers Israel full peace with Arab nations if it withdraws from Arab lands and allows the creation of a Palestinian state. Damascus has billed the summit as an opportunity for Arab nations to take a strong united stance on the Israel-Palestinian issue. Instead, the region's powerhouses have shunned the Syrian-hosted gathering. The summit has only solidified the region's rift between Syria and pro-US countries. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan sent only low-level officials to the two-day gathering in a snub to the Syrian hosts. Neighbour Lebanon boycotted the summit completely, sending no delegation. The countries blame Syria for blocking the election of a new president in Lebanon for months, prolonging its unending political crisis. Pro- and anti-Syrian camps have been locked in a long struggle for power in Lebanon. The Lebanese opposition, led by Syria's ally Hezbollah, has been boycotting parliament to prevent supporters of the Western-backed government from electing a president. The post has been empty since November, when pro-Syrian Emile Lahoud's term ended. In his speech, Assad denied that Syria was interfering in Lebanon. "Syria is perfectly ready to cooperate with any Arab or non-Arab efforts on this issue (Lebanese crisis) under the condition that any initiative must be based on the principle of national Lebanese consensus," said Assad. Yemen, Iraq, Bahrain, Oman, Morocco and Somalia.

The Israeli Prime Minister and Palestinian president, Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas, are in China this week, although not traveling together. There has been speculation over whether China could host talks between the two leaders. Direct talks between Israeli and Palestinian leaders have been deadlocked for 4 years. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says he is willing to meet with his Israeli counterpart if conditions permit. [Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President]: "In principle, I have no objection to meeting with Mr. Netanyahu, and if this meeting happens in China, it is also something that I would welcome. But we have not agreed to such a meeting." But there are some preliminary criteria, says Abbas. [Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President]: "There are questions directed to Mr. Netanyahu about his agreement to accept a two state solution with the 1967 borders. If he does I have no problem meeting him anywhere." Abbas said he and Chinese leader Xi Jinping had productive talks on the Israeli-Palestinian issue. China has sought diplomatic ties with both countries and has expressed its willingness to host peace talks. Subscribe to NTDonChina ☛ http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

President Donald Trump is welcoming Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi (AHB'-del fat-AH' el-SEE'-see) to the White House. The Egyptian president arrived Monday morning. Trump greeted him with a handshake before the pair headed inside. Topics el-Sissi may broach with the new president include military aid for the country. Trump has repeatedly mentioned Egypt as one of the Muslim-majority allies that the U.S. should maintain its partnership with in the fight against extremists like the Islamic State group. The White House welcome comes after a tense relationship between Egypt's leader and the previous administration. Former President Barack Obama never invited el-Sissi to the White House and allowed his administration to repeatedly admonish his government over its human rights record. Obama also briefly suspended some U.S. military aid.
