US President Donald Trump considered that "Israeli" settlements complicate the so-called "peace" process with Palestinians and urged "care" over the issue.
Trump further told an "Israeli" newspaper that he did not believe the Palestinians, and possibly the Zionist entity as well, were ready to make peace.
Trump angered Palestinians in December when he recognized the holy city of occupied as the Zionist entity's so-called capital.
He also threatened to withhold aid unless Palestinians agreed to talks.
Trump's latest comments came in an interview published on Sunday with the conservative newspaper Yisrael Hayom.
Asked by Editor-in-chief Boaz Bismouth when the US would present its peace plan, Trump said: "We will see what happens. Right now the Palestinians are not into making peace, they are just not into it. Regarding "Israel", I am not certain it, too, is interested in making peace so we will just need to wait and see what happens."
Asked whether "Israeli" settlements would form part of the peace plan, he said: "We will be talking about settlements. The settlements are something that very much complicates and always have complicated making peace, so I think "Israel" has to be very careful with the settlements."
