Jerusalem should be shared capital: UK

Enlarge

A statement issued by Egypt's foreign ministry said the two top diplomats underlined the importance of maintaining the historical and legal status of Jerusalem.

The Saudi foreign minister said Riyadh's position toward Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Palestine is firm and had not changed, adding that the ministerial meeting came up with some proposals to counter the USA decision and support the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic stand on Jerusalem and the Arab-Israeli dispute.

The Jordanian leader said the issue of Jerusalem should be settled through negotiations and as part of a lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis based on the two-state solution, the global resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.

Trump's decision on Jerusalem and announcement in December that the United States would start the process of moving its embassy from Tel Aviv enraged the Palestinians who said the United States can no longer broker peace with Israel.

"We pay HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect".

Speaking with Sputnik Radio's Loud & Clear about Trump's threat to axe funding to the Palestinians, cofounder of The Electronic Intifada, Ali Abumimah, said it would be important to determine whether the funding cuts would hit UNRWA or the Palestinian Authority.

Also, for many years, a central aspect of United States policy was the search for a Palestinian-Israeli peace agreement.

Palestinians want the West Bank for a future state, along with East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.

President Donald Trump announced last month that the U.S. would relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the disputed holy city.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants a United Nations agency serving Palestinian refugees to "disappear" because he believes their descendants are a threat to Israel's existence.

A committee from the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) has been preparing documents for discussion during the meeting of the organization's Central Council next week, deciding the future Palestinian political steps.

Israel captured eastern Jerusalem - which includes Judaism's holiest sites, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in the Old City - and the West Bank in the 1967 defensive war, seizing it from Jordanian occupation and reuniting the city.

"I have determined that it is time to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel", Trump said.

Arab states will also discuss whether to convene an extraordinary summit of their leaders or wait until a scheduled summit in the Saudi capital Riyadh at the end of March, he added.
