Netanyahu-Trump meeting in the White House is underway

Police question Netanyahus under caution in graft case

President Trump is set to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on Monday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the weekly cabinet meeting at his Jerusalem office.

"This will be remembered by our people through the ages", Netanyahu said regarding the embassy decision during brief remarks in the Oval Office.

Despite fierce worldwide opposition, Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December and announced the U.S. embassy would move to the city in May, shortly after Israel's 70th anniversary. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said last month that the US ambassador and a small staff will begin working at the temporary embassy this spring, with plans for a new embassy facility to open on the compound by the end of next year. We're as close now as maybe ever before. Prosecutors say Netanyahu advanced regulatory benefits worth up to 1 billion shekels (approximately $280 million) for Elovitch in exchange for favorable media coverage.

Trump and Netanyahu were expected to discuss Iran's growing influence in Syria and the US nuclear deal brokered by former President Obama at Monday's meeting.

The embattled U.S. president warmly welcomed the embattled Israeli prime minister, claiming ties between their two countries had "never been better" as he floated a May trip that would be a major security and diplomatic challenge.

It is a method that Trump has honed in dealing with an investigation into whether his campaign team colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 United States elections.

"We will discuss Iranian aggression in our region in general and especially with regard to the Iranian nuclear program". White House officials said it was unlikely those issues would arise during talks with Trump.

"I think we have a very good chance", Trump said of finding a solution for peace between Israel and Palestine.

Both Trump and Netanyahu entered their White House meeting under heavy political pressure domestically. "That is our common challenge".

Netanyahu is in Washington D.C to take part in the annual AIPAC conference where he is scheduled to speak on Tuesday.

"If we don't come up with a strategy against Iran we're going to make Israel go to war here pretty soon with the Hezbollah elements in southern Lebanon", said Sen.

Trump also spoke about when his administration's Middle East peace plan would be released, which has been under wraps for several months.

The Palestinians, meanwhile, said Trump's decision on Jerusalem renders the United States an unreliable actor in peace talks.

The Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. "So we're working very hard on it".

If I had to say what is our greatest challenge in the Middle East to both our countries, to our Arab neighbors, it's encapsulated in one word: "Iran", he said.
