As the press service of the Kremlin, Putin explained to Abbas, "Russia's position of principle in support of the immediate resumption of direct Palestinian-Israeli talks on all contentious issues, including the status of Jerusalem, and entry to long-term equitable solutions that meet the interests of both parties".
In addition, the two leaders noted the importance of the signed in October in Cairo of an agreement between the controlling the Gaza strip, the Palestinian Hamas and opposing him with the Fatah movement. Abbas and Putin also discussed issues of bilateral cooperation.2.*
Reuters, citing a statement of the official representative of the PNA reported that trump called Abbas and warned him about his decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. While not reported, said the American leader of the period of execution of his intentions.
"President Abbas warned of the dangerous consequences of this decision for the situation with the restoration of peace, security and stability in the region and around the world," — said the official representative of the PNA.
According to him, Abbas called for not only the President of the Russian Federation, but and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, the king of Jordan Abdullah II and Pope Francis to stop the implementation of the plan of trump on the transfer of the Embassy from tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Trump, meanwhile, had a telephone conversation with Egyptian President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi. The White house also discussed the situation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Jordan's king and head of the Palestinian authority. Abbas adviser Nabil Shaath in an interview with reporters, said that the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel does not give Trump the chance to go down in history as the man who played a crucial role in this "deal of the century", said NEWSru Israel.
The king of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, in a phone interview, trump said that any US decision on the status of Jerusalem until reaching a final solution to the conflict in the PNA will cause damage to the peace negotiations. This is the official page of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Kingdom on Twitter.
"Saudi Arabia has supported and continues to support the Palestinian people and to defend its historical rights. This dangerous move will provoke the feelings of Muslims worldwide for whom the significance of Jerusalem and al-Aqsa mosque," said the monarch.
Speaking in Parliament, President Recep Tayip Erdogan said that the us administration will cross the "red line", recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or moving to this city the U.S. Embassy. He warned that in response, Ankara has the right to break off diplomatic relations with Israel. He promised to convene an emergency summit of the organization of Islamic States to discuss the situation around Jerusalem.
The law on the transfer of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem was adopted in 1995 but to do it had until may 31, 1999. However, the law for the President reserved the right of veto, which every six months was imposed by bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, trying to avoid steps that could further aggravate the situation in the middle East. Thus, the fulfillment of the law was postponed. Trump in June did the same. But last week at a meeting in the White house, according to administration officials, he expressed the opinion that it is time to grant the request of Israel.
It is expected that the tramp may make a statement on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is already 6 December. The U.S. state Department is preparing diplomats and the military personnel of countries in the Arab world, mass protests and outbreaks of violence among the Muslim population. At the same time, the leaders of the Islamic world are turning EN masse to the us administration's warnings and requests, strongly urging to prevent a possible move by the President.
A number of leaders of Arab and other countries have already spoke negatively about such intention trump, calling it a terrible mistake. As informs NEWSru Israel, the foreign Minister of Jordan, Ayman Safadi has warned that the tramp's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will cause anger in the Arab and Muslim world. Against the ideas expressed and the League of Arab States. Secretary General of the League Ahmed Aboul Gheit joined the leaders of the Islamic world, noting: "the Desire to change the situation without considering the impact of these changes on regional and global stability is regrettable".
In the opinion of many, to meet a long-standing request of Israel is to undermine all peace efforts in the middle East. Thus, in particular, the President of France, celebrated in the course of telephone conversations with trump that the status of Jerusalem can be determined only at the end of the peace talks between Israel and Palestine. The same view is held and a spokesman for Turkish President Ibrahim Kalin.
