US President Donald Trump has asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to "hold off" on settlements. reports that, in a joint news conference, Mr Trump also promised to deliver a "great" peace deal, but said Israel and the Palestinians must both compromise.

Neither leader committed explicitly to back a future independent Palestine, a longstanding bedrock of US policy.

Israel has approved thousands of new homes in West Bank and East Jerusalem settlements since Mr Trump took office.

The Israeli government is hoping for better relations with the White House after eight years of friction with the former Obama administration.

At Wednesday's press conference, Mr Trump was asked about his commitment to the so-called two-state solution.
