Arab Parliament Speaker Calls For An Emergency Meet

Arab Parliament Speaker Dr. Mishaal bin Fahm Al Salami called for an emergency meeting in order to discuss Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and its plan to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City.

In a statement on Wednesday, Dr. Al Salami said that during the session, members of the Arab Parliament – representing various groups in Arab society – will issue a resolution to reflect the “pulse of the Arab street”, following this “dangerous” decision by the US administration.

He added that the decision is a challenge to all international conventions and resolutions, a threat to international peace and security, and provokes the sentiments of Arabs, Muslims and the international community, alike.

Al Salami explained that the US decision was established based on a “unilateral will to change the current legal status” of the occupied city, defying the framework of international references and relevant UN resolutions.
