British Prime Minister Theresa May urged Donald Trump to bring forward proposals on achieving Israeli-Palestinian peace after the US president recognized Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital.

May spoke to Trump by telephone on Tuesday.

“They discussed the different positions we took on the recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, and agreed on the importance of the US bringing forward new proposals for peace and the international community supporting these efforts,” a spokesman for May said.

“The Prime Minister updated the President on the recent good progress of the Brexit negotiations, and the President set out the progress he had made on his economic agenda,” May’s spokesman said.

“They agreed on the importance of a swift post-Brexit bilateral trade deal,” the spokesman said.
