Trump on Israeli-Palestinian conflict: 'I like two-state solution'

US President Donald Trump speaks to the media along with US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley upon arriving for the UN General Assembly

"Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election, coming up in November, against my administration", Trump said during remarks at a UN Security Council meeting on nonproliferation.

China has responded to Mr. Trump's tariffs by targeting higher duties on US farm exports, hitting especially hard at Mr. Trump's GOP base in Midwestern and southern states. Trump has boasted that the U.S. economy is performing at record levels while China's is struggling as evidence the United States is winning the dispute.

Republicans who represent areas hit hard by China's retaliatory tariffs have criticized Trump's tariffs, even as they say they agree with his position that China's approach to trade with the USA must change.

USA intelligence officials have said they are not now seeing the intensity of Russian intervention registered in 2016 and are also concerned about activity by China, Iran and North Korea.

"We don't want to them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election", he said, breaking from protocol at the traditionally highly scripted Security Council. "It is a dream of mine to be able to get that done prior to the end of my first term", added Trump, who was elected to a four-year term through January 2021. This summer, reports also emerged that Russia's GRU intelligence agency, with an eye on the upcoming USA elections, had attempted to hack accounts related to the re-election campaign of Sen.

But Trump's comments Wednesday seem to confirm that China is actively interfering now. One week ago, he said in a tweet, "China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers due to their loyalty to me".

"All of the fools that are so focused on looking only at Russian Federation should start also looking in another direction, China", he wrote then.

During the public part of the meeting, which took place at the United Nations headquarters, Trump for the first time since taking office publicly said that he would like a two-state solution and that he thinks it would be the best way to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Trump said Israel is being aggressive on defense because it has to be.

A representative from China who attended the meeting could be seen coughing into his hand and shrugging as the president spoke.

Netanyahu also said that he had discussed Russia's pledge to supply Syria with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles with the president.

The high-profile Security Council meeting came a day after Trump poured scorn on the "ideology of globalism" and heaped praise on his own administration's achievements in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly that drew head shakes and even mocking laughter from his audience of fellow world leaders.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi appeared to shrug as the president made the accusation, which comes at a moment of heightened tension between Washington and Beijing following a wave of heated trade negotiations that have been a signature of Mr. Trump's foreign policy over the past year.

"Kim Jong-un, a man I have gotten to know and like, wants peace and prosperity for North Korea", Trump said.

"And we are winning on trade".

"It remains the best means of preventing Iran developing a nuclear weapon and we are committed to preserving the JCPOA as long as Iran continues to abide by its obligations in full", May said.
