His comments regarding Israel come in response to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatening to annex parts of the West Bank.

Speaking to reporters Monday, Ortagus said that "the administration's position on the settlements has not changed".

Shoval argued that Friedman "left it open" regarding whether he saw Israel controlling parts of the West Bank long-term as the result of a negotiated deal or annexation.

Friedman has in the past been a supporter of Israeli settlements as has the family of Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and adviser leading efforts to put together the peace deal.

"A two-state solution that achieves legitimate Palestinian aspirations and meets Israel's security needs remains the only viable way forward and it will be our policy to support such a solution actively", the Democratic hopeful said. Palestinians did not fire back, Quds said.

Palestinian officials did not attend a Middle East peace conference organized in Warsaw in February. That initiative has been led out of the White House by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, along with Friedman and a former lawyer for the Trump organization, Jason Greenblatt.

"It is now not on the radar screen and there is what I would describe as a willful acquiescence to the settlement enterprise", Miller said.

The White House will present the first part of US President Donald Trump's Israeli-Palestinian peace plan when it holds an global conference in Bahrain in late June to encourage investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Other analysts raised the security implications of annexation.

The suspects have been transferred for further questioning, they said.

Shoval said: "Since 2004 and the exchange of letters between Bush and Sharon, it was more or less clear to Israelis and the worldwide community that the so-called large settlement blocs will be an integral part of the State of Israel in the future".

Earlier on Tuesday, an Israeli army spokesman said that Israeli security forces had arrested overnight 18 Palestinians suspected of "terror" activity and participation in violent protests in the West Bank.
