US Charm Offensive to Revive Mideast Peace Talks Denounced

Lawmakers said the US decision to recognize Beit-ul-Moqaddas as Israel’s capital has in effect been the final nail in the coffin of the Palestinian-Israeli peace talks, rejecting the recently reported US offer to support a Palestinian state excluding the holy city as a “charm offensive”. 
Israeli media have recently reported that US President Donald Trump, under pressure from its European allies, has suggested he might be willing to accept a Palestinian state, but that its capital cannot be Beit-ul-Moqaddas.
In a recent talk with ICANA, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said, “Islamic countries must not fall for Trump’s tricks, and European countries should know that this is not the way to solve the Palestinian issue.” 
Trump upended decades of American policy when he decided to recognize Beit-ul-Moqaddas as the Israeli capital last December, aggravating a decades-old issue that has festered since the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, when the Israelis occupied the entire city. The move has never been accepted by the international community.
