US President Donald Trump has said Zionist Entity’s illegal settlements in occupied Palestinian territories have “complicated” the so-called peace process and urged “care” over the issue.
In an interview with Zionist Entity “Hayom” newspaper, Trump also said he did not believe the Zionists, as well as the Palestinians, were ready to make peace.
Asked by the daily when the US would present its peace plan, Trump said: “We will see what happens. Right now the Palestinians are not into making peace, they are just not into it. Regarding (Israel), I am not certain it, too, is interested in making peace so we will just need to wait and see what happens!”.
Asked whether Zionist settlements would form part of the peace plan, he added in this aspect: “We will be talking about settlements. The settlements are something that very much complicates and always have complicated making peace, so i think (Israel) has to be very careful with the settlements”.
About 600,000 Zionists live in over 230 illegal settlements built, since the 1967 occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.
For their parts, Palestinians want the West Bank as part of a future independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.
On the other hand, the dramatic shift in Washington’s policy vis-à-vis the city triggered demonstrations in the occupied Palestinian territories, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria, Iraq, Morocco, and other Muslim countries.
