US Pres. Donald Trump Visits Israel Amid Tight Security


United States President, Mr. Donald Trump is currently visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories, as he continues his first foreign trip.

He flew in from Saudi Arabia, a key US ally, where he gave a speech to Arab and Muslim leaders at a summit.

Mr Trump will hold talks with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders during the course of his two-day stop.

The president has called an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement “the ultimate deal”, but has been vague about what form it should take.

He has said he prefers to leave it to both sides to decide between them in direct talks.

The Associated Press and Haaretz reported that Mr Trump’s flight between Saudi Arabia and Israel was likely to be the first between the two countries, which have no diplomatic relations.
