Arab League condemns US Jerusalem move

Cairo, The head of the Arab League has called US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “dangerous and unacceptable” and a “flagrant attack on a political solution” to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.

The statement by Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, the regional bloc’s secretary-general, came at the start of an emergency meeting of foreign ministers from 22 Arab states in Egypt’s capital, Cairo, on Saturday.

Aboul-Gheit said Trump’s decision was “against international law and raises questions over American efforts to support peace” between Palestine and Israel.

The shift in US policy “undermines Arab confidence” in the Trump administration and “amounts to the legalisation” of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, he added.
