Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has hailed the international consensus rejecting US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv.

Speaking at an emergency Arab League meeting in Cairo on Saturday night, Jubeir called on the US administration to reverse its decision on Jerusalem and to take international action to enable the Palestinian people to exercise their legitimate rights.

Jubeir said that “the Arab initiative presented by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and approved by the Beirut summit in 2002 is a roadmap for solving all crises”.

He also called on the international community “to intensify its efforts to reach a just and comprehensive solution” to the conflict.
