In Cairo, Abbas, Sissi agree to continue coordinated response to Trump Jerusalem move

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Egypt President Abdul Fatah a-Sisi agree to continue coordination and consultations in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The two leaders held meetings today in the Egyptian capital to discuss the shift in the US’s policy on Jerusalem that has sparked several unrest in the Arab world.

“We will continue to consult with our Arab brothers, especially with Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab parties, to confront the coming dangers, especially after the unacceptable American step in Jerusalem,” says Abbas’s spokesperson Nabil Abu Rudeinah says according to the PA’s official news site Wafa.
