Putin told Abbas before the meeting that he had spoken with Trump about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Trump offered Putin U.S. assistance in the ongoing investigation into the crash of Saratov Airlines Flight 703, according to a White House readout of the call.

Monday saw an awkward turn in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's and President Donald Trump's "friends for ever" relationship, which is still being sorted out.

Vice President Mike Pence visited Israel and neighboring states last month, but Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas refused to see him.

This comes amid Israel's plan to annex Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

The holy city remains at the heart of the Middle East conflict, with Palestinians urging that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - must serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
