Arab parliament seeks to thwart Israel's UNSC membership bid


(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) CAIRO, Dec 28 (KUNA) -- The Arab Parliament has approved a plan to move strongly to prevent an Israeli bid to have a non-permanent seat of the UN Security Council (UNSC).

The step was taken during a parliament session held in Cairo today (Thursday) under the rubric: "Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine".

Under the fresh plan, full support should be extended to all Palestinian efforts to address a recent US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Divisions and splits among different Palestinian factions and groups should be resolved, and Egypt needs to continue its significant role in inter-Palestinian reconciliation, according to the plan.

All Arab parliaments should seek to put the issue of Jerusalem, especially its historical and legal status, on the agenda of the next session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) due in Geneva on March 24-28, 2018. (end) mfm.mt
