Safadi briefs Arab counterparts on efforts to address US Jerusalem move

Safadi briefs Arab counterparts on efforts to address US Jerusalem move

Abbas will attend the routine monthly meeting on the Middle East, which focuses on the Israel-Palestinian issue.

This in order to adopt the peace process, the State of Palestine's efforts to gain full membership in the United Nations and join global organizations and conventions in order to strengthen its legal and worldwide status. "I think that it is very good for council members to meet with the president and to listen to him".

The US decision adds to Palestinian anger at Washington following its decision in December to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital despite the final status of the city being one of the key points to be decided in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Arab foreign ministers on Thursday called for the creation of a UN-backed "multilateral mechanism" to help revive the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

Arab foreign ministers met last month, he said, and "there is an Arab movement to push forward the peace process" and "to oppose the Israeli violations, especially those pertaining to Jerusalem and the settlements".

Russian President Vladimir Putin (L) shakes hands with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas during their meeting at the Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow on April 13, 2015.

Chris Stapleton will bring summer tour to Boston area
Citi card members will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets through Citi's Private Pass Program beginning at 10 a.m. The Colonial Life Arena announced Monday that Stapleton's "All-American Road Show" will stop in Columbia on October 25.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its united capital, while the Palestinians see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state.

"It is easy to walk away from the table", he said, "but that helps no one and reduces or perhaps even eliminates the chances of achieving a comprehensive peace agreement, and that would be awful for the Palestinian people".

They also asked for an worldwide conference to be held to re-start peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and the global recognition of a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital.

The meeting resulted in a resolution calling for Arab action to counter the United States administration's decision and welcoming the decision of the UN General Assembly in its 10th special emergency session under the slogan of "Unity for Peace", issued on December 21, 2017, reaffirming rejection of any resolution recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli occupying forces, and the transfer of diplomatic missions to it.

"If I can put it in a headline, "Nothing without the United States, Nothing with the United states alone", she said. Council members also have the opportunity to speak about the situation.

Among those present at the Brussels meeting was the Palestinian Authority's prime minister, Rami Hamdallah, marking the first time a Palestinian official has worked with United States officials since Trump's Jerusalem announcement. "For the sake of the Palestinian and Israeli people, we pray it does so again".
