The Arab League members urged joint action during a “delicate stage” to face “unprecedented” US-supported efforts by Israel aimed at “legitimising unlawful conditions and an illegal reality.” During the session, the ministers expressed “sorrow” that several nations have chosen to “ride this wave,” opening diplomatic missions in occupied Jerusalem, committing a clear breach of international law and relevant Security Council resolutions .These countries should be made aware that Arab nations are monitoring their every stance and that these moves are condemned and rejected and affect their relationship with all Arab nations, Arab League chief Ahmed Abulgheit told the meeting. He urged the need for Arab countries to work closely on their “priority and main issue.” – KUNA
