White House sees Western Wall as part of Israel

Washington (dpa) - The United States envisions the Western Wall as part of Israel under an eventual peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians, a senior Trump administration official told reporters ahead of a trip to the region by Vice President Mike Pence.

"We cannot envision any situation under which the Western Wall would not be part of Israel," the official said, after US President Donald Trump had already inflamed tensions in the region over his declaration earlier this month that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The wall, the remains of the western wall of the Second Temple, are a sacred site in Judaism and part of the larger area that is the focal point of the religious tensions in Jerusalem known as the Temple Mount to Jews and Noble Sanctuary to Muslims.

The statement could fan tensions amid outrage by Palestinians and the broader Arab world over Trump‘s declaration.

Officials said they see Trump‘s move as evidence he will keep his word and insist he is still focused on achieving peace.

"We anticipated reactions like the ones going on in the region, but are going to remain hard at work on our plan," an official said.

"We understand that the Palestinians may need a bit of a cooling-off period, but that‘s fine .... So we will be ready when the Palestinians are ready to re-engage, but in the meantime, there‘s plenty to do."

Pence is to travel to Egypt, Israel and Germany beginning Tuesday.
