President Trump Says "Good Chance" For Israeli-Palestinian Peace

Off-Broadway theatrics Netanyahu's top 4 spotlight-stealing UN moments

Netanyahu stressed how he wanted to discuss with POTUS "how we can address together with the bad nuclear deal with Iran" and how to roll back Iran "growing aggression in the region, especially in Syria".

But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump. The Israeli leader has called for the agreement to be canceled or modified.

Israel has maintained that once the restrictions expire in 10 to 15 years, Tehran will be in a position to quickly resume work on developing an atomic weapon. In reality, Iran has little incentive to negotiate such concessions. "In our region, although they wanted to use terrorism as a tool, but the nations of the region, especially Iraq and Syria, are defeating terrorism and the terrorists are nearing their end".

France and other nations have urged Trump not to scrap the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which eased worldwide sanctions in exchange for curbs on Tehran's nuclear weapons program. "Fixing the deal requires many things, among them inspecting military and any other site that is suspect, and penalizing Iran for every violation".

During Monday's meeting between Iran's President Hassan Rouhani and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, the former highlighted the importance of fully implementing the agreement by all participants. In July this year, Iran launched a rocket towards space. If he does not, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions waived under the deal.

"You'll be seeing very soon", Trump answered, as he and Netanyahu walked out together.

Well, thank you very much.

In his over-40-minute talk, Trump threatened that the United States "will have no choice than to totally destroy" the North Korea unless Pyongyang refrains from its nuclear tests and missile launches. Netanyahu said he presented the United States with a detailed plan on how to do that.

Under President Trump, the USA position toward Israel in the United Nations has been unequivocal; it's been strong; it's got both clarity and conviction. "I think it can happen". Most people will say there's no chance whatsoever.

The Trump administration has also tried to broker a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

Royce's comments came hours after President Donald Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly and railed against the agreement between global powers and Iran concerning sanctions and the country's nuclear intentions.
