Arab Foreign Ministers have decided to seek international recognition of Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital after Washington recognized the holy city as Israel’s capital.
Six Arab foreign ministers and the Chief of the Arab league met in Amman, Jordan to discuss issues surrounding U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent decision to recognize Al-Quds as the capital of Israel and his call to move the U.S. Embassy to the holy city.
The meeting, initiated by Jordan, was attended by Foreign Ministers of Jordan, Egypt, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Morocco and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita, and Arab league Secretary-General, Ahmed Aboul Gheit.
The attendees reached a consensus in seeking the most effective solution to the Palestine-Israel issue to counter against Trump’s decision, which was announced by the U.S. President in early December.
All sides agreed to step up efforts to solve Palestine-Israel conflicts from a political angle, on the premise of safeguarding the freedom of rights to Palestinians, and set up an independent state with east Al-Quds as its capital.
They agreed that the Al-Quds issue should be settled through negotiation and as part of a lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis based on the two-state solution, international resolutions of legality and the Arab peace initiative.
In addition, the six Foreign Ministers also negotiated on consequences of U.S. Decision, and the efforts of Arab countries in protecting the Arab identity of Al-Quds, as well as its historical and legal position
