Trump's Jerusalem decision shows US not honest says Iran's Rouhani


(MENAFN- Gulf Times) US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital shows that the United States lacks any respect for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian nation, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted on Wednesday.

Rouhani, who attended an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Turkey's Istanbul city on Wednesday, also said on his Twitter account that the move showed that the US was not "an honest mediator and will never be", adding that Washington only wanted to "secure the interests of the Zionists".

Jordan's King rejects change in status

Jordan's King Abdullah rejected any attempt to change the status of Jerusalem or its holy sites, and said peace would not come to the region without a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
"All violence... is a result of a failure to find a peaceful solution to the Palestinian issue," he told the summit.

King Abdullah's Hashemite dynasty is custodian of the Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem, making Amman particularly sensitive to any changes of status after the Trump's administration's decision to recognise it as Israel's capital.
