CAIRO, 5th December, 2017 (WAM) -- The Permanent Representatives to the Arab League met on Tuesday to discuss the evolving developments regarding the holy city of Jerusalem and its legal and historic status in the background of the move by the United States, US, to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Juma Mubarak Al Junaibi, UAE Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative to the Arab League, represented the UAE at the meeting, which convened at the request of Palestine. The aim was to formulate a unified Arab position towards the US decisions.
Addressing the extraordinary meeting of the Arab League's Council at the level of permanent representatives, Secretary-General of Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, demanded the US administration to refrain from taking any initiative that could change the legal and political status of the holy city or any issues affecting the final status solution.
He warned of the serious consequences of such moves on regional security and stability. ''Tampering with the destiny of Jerusalem, which has a special place in the hearts of the Arabs, will inflame feelings of fanaticism, violence, hostility and hatred across the Arab and Muslim worlds,'' he cautioned.
