In Amman US state secretary defends Trump's J'lem move

The United States is due to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14.

The Israeli public is not anxious about the direct conflict between Israel and Iran which may erupt in the near future, said a survey released on Wednesday.

Netanyahu said that the "secret nuclear archive" offered "conclusive proof" of an Iranian nuclear weapons plan that could be activated at any time and that that 2015 nuclear deal was "based on Iranian lies and Iranian deception".

The Iranian nuclear deal, he continued, is a bad agreement based on Iranian lies and deceit.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to return to peace negotiations with Israel during their meeting in the Palestinian city of Ramallah on Tuesday night.

Abe also urged Israel to refrain from building new settlements in Palestinian territory.

Abe told the monarch that "Jordan's stability is indispensable for regional stability", and that Japan will provide as much aid as possible to ensure the country's economic and social stability.
