In the video, Zarif also appears to troll Trump as well, saying: "To put it in real-estate terms, when you buy a house and move your family in it or demolish it to build a skyscraper, you can not come back two years later and renegotiate the price".

The demonstrators are pressing for a right of return for refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel.

On the issue of recognition of Jerusalem, Rivlin told Kono that just as "Tokyo is absolutely the only capital of Japan, Jerusalem is the capital of State of Israel".
