Iranian Foreign Minister criticizes Trump

He described the fight against terrorism as a "battle between good and evil" and stressed that while the U.S. will continue to support its allies in the fight against terrorism, its policy will be rooted in "principled realism", not "inflexible ideology". It has nothing to do with country.

On Saturday the United States and Saudi Arabia announced an arms deal worth almost $110 billion (98 billion euros), which was described as the largest in U.S. history. "Foreign Policy or simply milking KSA of $480B?", Zarif wrote in a Twitter post, referring to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The move, however, was notable as President Donald Trump once criticized then-first lady Michelle Obama for choosing not to wear a head scarf during her 2015 visit to Saudi Arabia with her husband, former President Barack Obama.

Ivanka introduced World Bank President Jim Young Kim, who announced that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will donate a combined total of $100 million to a women's empowerment fund that was inspired by Ivanka Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, ABC News reported.

"Of course, there is still much work to be done. Honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews and the slaughter of Christians".

Trump, who had previously suggested that it would be easier than anticipated to solve the conflict that has vexed his predecessors for decades, said that conditions were right in both Israel and the Arab world to strike what he has called "the ultimate deal".

Trump also spoke about how driving out terrorist can restore the Middle East to greatness of its past.

"A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists". "Drive out the extremists", Trump continued, "Drive them out of your places of worship". Drive them out of your communities.

The president made no mention of human rights during his visit, and in the speech insisted: "We are not here to lecture - we are not here to tell other people how to live".

"But there's still a lot of work to be done and freedoms and opportunities to continue to fight for", said Ivanka, who serves as an adviser to her father.

In the conservative Sunni kingdom of Saudi Arabia, citizens do not elect national leaders.

Trump on Sunday also touted Washington's "wonderful relationship" with Bahrain, which hosts the U.S Navy's 5th Fleet. The comments made Sunday come as a stark contrast to the slew of Islamophobic remarks Trump made on the campaign trail, calling for a ban on Muslims and declaring "Islam hates us".

In his first keynote speech overseas, Trump sought to redefine his relationship with the Muslim world, and focused on his desire to curb Iran's influence in the region.

"Trump became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall". It will be worth 350 billion dollars over 10 years.

Israeli Cabinet minister Yuval Steinitz, a close confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said while the Iranian threat is a "joint interest" of Israel and Gulf Arabs, the size of the arms deal is a cause for concern. The official briefed on Sunday's meeting said the package includes building permits for Palestinians in Area C that has largely been off limits to Palestinian development until now.

"We need to hear the explanations and make sure that our military advantage is maintained even with Saudi Arabia", Steinitz said.
