Arab League to convene to discuss ‘illegal’ US embassy move

The Arab League will hold emergency talks Wednesday to discuss Washington’s “illegal” decision to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a senior official says.

The meeting will focus on “ways of countering the illegal decision by the United States to move the embassy to Jerusalem,” the organization’s deputy secretary general for Palestinian affairs, Saeed Abu Ali, says.

He tells reporters the permanent representatives of members of the Cairo-based Arab League would meet “at the request of the state of Palestine.”
