Arab foreign ministers on Sunday urged the United States to abandon its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying the move would increase violence throughout the region.
The announcement by President Donald Trump on Wednesday was a "dangerous violation of international law" and had no legal impact, the Arab League said in a statement after several hours of meetings attended by all its members in Cairo.
#Jordan's FM: We need to move with the international community to confirm the invalidity of #Trump’s #Jerusalem decision. It must be met by an effective, capable Arab action. We urge world to officially recognize #Palestine as a state. https://t.co/Q09ocjLCqv pic.twitter.com/YjJx25sJM1— Al Arabiya English (@AlArabiya_Eng) December 9, 2017
