France : US excluded itself from Mideast peace process

Amman, France said on Friday the United States had sidelined itself in the Middle East by recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Reporters reported.

“I hear some, including Mr Tillerson, say things will happen in time and the hour is for negotiations. Until now (the U.S.) could have had a mediation role in this conflict, but it has excluded itself a little,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said, referring to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is in Paris for talks after visiting Brussels and Vienna.
