Abbas briefs Emir on US move on Jerusalem


(MENAFN- Gulf Times) His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani received a written message from the President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas, pertaining to the latest developments in the Palestinian arena and the possibility of the US administration to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or the transfer of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The ambassador of Palestine to Qatar Munir Abdullah Ghannam delivered the message during a meeting with His Highness the Emir at Al Bahr Palace yesterday.
During the meeting, the Emir affirmed the State of Qatar's firm stance on the Palestinian issue in general and Jerusalem in particular because of its religious and political importance to Arabs, Muslims and the whole world.
Qatar has totally rejected any measure calling for the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA) that such measures undermine the international efforts aiming at the implementation of the Two-State solution.
The source reiterated Qatar's firm position in support of the Palestinian cause and the rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, foremost of which is the establishment of an independent and sovereign state on the basis of the 4 June 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.
Meanwhile, the extraordinary session of the Council of the League of Arab States, at the level of permanent delegates, began yesterday at the headquarters of the Arab League Secretariat to discuss developments affecting Jerusalem and its legal and historical status.
Qatar participated in the meeting with a delegation headed by Permanent Representative to the Arab League Saif bin Muqaddam al-Buainain.
The meeting discussed the formulation of an Arab position to confront threats and challenges facing Jerusalem, its identity and its historic status.
