At Davos Forum, Trump Threatens to Cut Aid to Palestinians
Saturday, 27 January 2018 04:25 WIB | POLITICS |Global

U.S. President Donald Trump has questioned whether peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians will ever resume.

Trump made the remarks in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he accused the Palestinians of disrespecting the United States after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas refused to meet with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during his recent visit to the region.

Trump threatened Thursday to cut aid to the Palestinians.

"That money is on the table and that money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace," he told reporters. "Because I can tell you that Israel does want to make peace, and they're going to have to want to make peace too, or we're going to have nothing to do with it any longer."

Earlier in Davos, Trump rejected what he called "false rumors" of differences with British Prime Minister Theresa May and promised to boost trade after Britain's EU exit.

There is nervousness that Trump's "America First" diplomacy is about to shake-up the global system that underpins the Davos summit.
