Instead of drawing them to the negotiating table with offers, he has scaled up his threats of what will happen if they don't agree to talks.

The State Department has reneged on a pledge to contribute $45 million in food aid, health services and other relief promised to Palestinian refugees this month.

"It was agreed to accelerate mutual contacts on that issue", said the Israeli contact. Trump questioned the value of the investment.

"The hardest subject they had to talk about was Jerusalem", he said.

"We are here, dedicated and ready to engage whenever they are".

US Ambassador Nikki Haley speaking at UN Headquarters in New York City. "We want to see you enter the room and negotiate peace". "But the money is on the table".

Haley said the USA would not "chase after a Palestinian leadership" that lack the qualities needed to end the conflict. Trump said Israel, too, should be prepared to concede some points in the peace talks in view of the embassy decision and USA recognition of Jerusalem as that nation's historic capital.

Jordan's King Abdullah insisted the U.S. continues to have a role to play.

"There's an alignment of Israel and other countries in the Middle East that would have been unimaginable ten years ago and certainly in my life time", Mr Netanyahu said during a session of the World Economic Forum.

If the Palestinians decline, they will lose USA aid, the president announced while in Davos, Switzerland.

The Israeli prime minister, a long-standing vocal opponent of the nuclear deal and the Iranian government, has repeatedly praised Trump's efforts to challenge the JCPOA.

Despite his national movement's current diplomatic losses, Zomlot said it still had at least one major piece of leverage - the suggestion that the long-term sustainability of a Jewish and democratic state depends on the realization of a Palestinian state.

Netanyahu applauded Trump's "stark decision" on the capital and the embassy and said it will advance peace prospects for the region.

The Palestinian envoy waved off criticism of Abbas's recent speech in which he denied any Jewish connection to Israel and said the Zionist movement emanated from European colonialism.

"They want to escape from a genuine discussion on real peace that includes recognition of the Jewish state that is in control of its own security". We took it off the table.

PACE said at the end of an urgent debate that "Europe should play a major role in the sponsorship and resumption of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process".

Almost twice as many Palestinians said they supported "armed struggle" against Israel compared with an identical survey six months previously, while there was also a fall in support for the two-state solution, the joint Israeli and Palestinian poll found.

In New York, the United States ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, gave a speech that hinted the timetable for talks might not be anytime soon and contained a clear ultimatum.
