US President Donald Trump on Tuesday said Jerusalem "will remain Israel's undivided capital" as he unveiled his Middle East plan aimed at solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Unveiling his administration's Middle East peace plan alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, Trump said Israel has taken a "giant step" towards peace.
He said that under his vision, Jerusalem "will remain Israel's undivided, very important capital."

"My vision presents a realistic two-state solution," he said and proposed a Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem.
Describing the plan as deal of the century, Trump said, "this could be the last opportunity they (Palestinians) will ever have."

"Palestinians deserve a far better life," Trump said.
