Israeli P.M vows to work with U.S. President on Palestine peace efforts
28 March 2017 Current Affairs: Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was committed to work with United States President Donald Trump to advance peace efforts with the Palestinians.

Netanyahu also expressed confidence in a US-Israeli partnership for preventing Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon, following its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, and for "confronting Iran’s aggression in the region."

Many Israelis had expected Trump, because of his pro-Israel campaign rhetoric, to give a green light for settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank. But Trump unexpectedly urged Netanyahu last month to "hold back on settlements for a little bit."
