Arab League blasts ‘shameful’ countries celebrating US embassy move

Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit blasts as “shameful” countries that are celebrating the opening of the US embassy in Israel in Jerusalem.

“It is shameful to see countries participating with the US and Israel in celebrating the former’s embassy move to occupied Jerusalem in a clear and grave violation of international law and (UN) Security Council resolutions,” says Abul Gheit.

Speaking in Cairo, where the Arab League is based, he calls on all countries to “refrain from taking any step that would harm the rights of the Palestinian people.”
