Trump's views on Islam 'continue to evolve,' says Secretary of State

Zarif Hits back at Trump: Foreign Policy or Simply Milking Saudi of $480B?

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir had on Thursday said America's first lady Melania and Ivanka won't be required to wear a headscarf in Saudi Arabia.

According to the memorandum, the centre is dedicated to cut funding for terrorist groups such as the Islamic State (IS), Al Qaeda, the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, the Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Afghan Taliban and its Haqqani network, among other groups.

She is accompanying US President Donald Trump on his first worldwide visit since taking office in January, and told 200 female employees she tried to find balance between her role of first lady and mother.

"Drive them out! Drive them out of your places of worship".

Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri on Sunday refuted the comments by U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson for urging a policy shift in Tehran's conduct during President Hassan Rouhani's second term.

The United States and Gulf Arab countries announced an agreement to coordinate efforts against the financing of terrorist groups.

Zarif's comments came hours after Trump, who is visiting Saudi Arabia, urged Arab and Islamic leaders to unite and defeat Islamist extremists.

"I think Islam hates us", Trump said during a CNN interview in March 2016.

Speaking in Saudi Arabia as her father met with Arab and Muslim leaders, Ivanka said progress in the nation was "encouraging" but said there was "still a lot of work to be done". His second stop on the nine-day tour aimed to test the waters for reviving the dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

"Our responsibility before God and our people and the whole world is to stand united to fight the forces of evil and extremism wherever they are [.] The Iranian regime represents the tip of the spear of global terrorism", the king said.

El-Sissi invited Trump to visit him in Egypt, adding, "You are a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible".

It was not clear if the $110 billion defense deal was included in that sum, or is separate, as Zarif's calculation suggests.

In some ways, Trump delivered a conventional speech for an American politician.

For Trump, the visit has been a welcome escape from the crush of controversies that have consumed his administration in recent weeks.

Reports have also emerged that Trump called Comey "a nut job" and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified a senior White House official as a "significant person of interest" in its probe of Russian meddling.

Officials spent the days before Mr Trump's departure dealing with a steady stream of revelations about the federal investigation into his campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation and the fallout from his firing of FBI director James Comey. While Trump campaigned as a strident opponent of the nuclear deal, his administration is still reviewing whether to scrap the accord.
