Haley also said she reached out to Ukraine to reassure that America won't waver against standing up for Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression. But that didn't mean every day was great. My father wore a turban, my mother wore sari.

"Earlier this year, the president waived sanctions to give our lawmakers and our allies time to act", Pence said.

Upping the pressure on Europeans now negotiating with the United States to find fixes for the Iran nuclear deal, US Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday that if provisions are not worked out, his superior Donald Trump will withdraw from the agreement signed by his predecessor Barack Obama in 2015. What used to be a monthly Israel bashing session now at least has more balance.

The head of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee called for the creation of a Palestinian state in his address to the organization's annual pro-Israel conference in Washington, D.C. Realization of that at the United Nations is the key to ending Israel's isolation there. Haley said that she hopes to attend the opening of the embassy there, scheduled for May, around Israel's 70th Independence Day celebration. "We will not stand for it any longer", Haley said as she reiterated the pledge of the Trump administration for its commitment to the Israeli. "Jerusalem was, is and always will be Israel's capital", Haley said on Monday. "If we want to talk about security in the Middle East we should talk about Iran or Syria or Hezbollah, Hamas, ISIS, the starvation in Yemen". "And President Trump had the courage to recognize that fact when others would not".

While the Trump administration has not been as forceful as past USA administrations on the issue of Palestinian statehood, reports last week suggested that the administration's possible peace proposal includes a call for a demilitarized Palestinian state with its capital in eastern Jerusalem.

The decision caused uproar in the Arab world and led Palestinian leaders to reject a U.S. role in mediating a resolution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "If I can, I will", Trump said, adding that the embassy would be "built very quickly".
