Arab League holds extraordinary session on U.S. Embassy’s move

Wed, Dec. 6, 2017
CAIRO – 6 December 2017: At the request of both Palestine and Jordon, the Council of the Arab League will hold an extraordinary session on Saturday to discuss the developments on the pending announcement about the relocation of the United States’ embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

According to a Palestinian-prepared memo obtained by the Middle East News Agency, the meeting will discuss the next steps by Arab countries towards a potential decision which is a violation of international law, the UN Security Council resolutions and the Fourth Geneva Convention, as the memo reported.

Earlier on Wednesday, President Donald Trump informed his Palestinian counterpart of his intention to relocate the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a move which implicitly gives Israel the right to call Jerusalem the Israeli capital.

Shortly afterwards, a Hashtag entitled “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine” is currently the most trending worldwide, with millions of tweets condemning the potential implied U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Several international and regional condemnations trailed Tuesday’s announcement.
