U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson completes the tour of the Middle East. His last stop will be Turkey, where he faces tough negotiations. Turkey is unhappy that the United States supports the Kurdish militia in Syria, and considers them terrorists.
However, the greatest attention was attracted by the statements made by Tillerson February 14, after talks with Jordan’s king Abdullah the Second. The Secretary reported that the work on a peace initiative to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, is nearing completion.
According to him, the President, Donald trump will push her when it deems the time appropriate. While Tillerson stressed that the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel does not mean abandoning the principle of «Two States for two peoples.»
The Secretary of state also said that Hizbullah is part of the political system of Lebanon, despite the fact that we are talking about a group recognized by the US as terrorist. He condemned Iran’s interference in Lebanese internal Affairs, a tool which was «Hezbollah».
