Macron asks Netanyahu to break peace deadlock

French President Emmanuel Macron told Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday that he needs to make gestures to the Palestinians to break the current impasse.

The two leaders met a few days after US President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Macron condemned all forms of attack against Israel. Netanyahu reaffirmed that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and no other nation.

Macron urged Netanyahu to show courage in his dealings with the Palestinians and freeze Jewish settlement building in the occupied territories.
