Game changer? Middle East diplomacy after Trump's Jerusalem move

Since Donald Trump decided to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital last week, the entire Middle East appears on the verge of bursting into flames. Meanwhile, against the backdrop of the ongoing crisis in Jerusalem, Russia's leader Vladimir Putin has kicked off an historic visit to Turkey and Egypt. Could Russia take a leading role in peace negotiations in the Middle East, as the US role recedes in the region?

Produced by Michele BARBERO, François WIBAUX and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
