Arab League to meet over US embassy move

Cairo: The Arab League will hold an extraordinary meeting to discuss the United State’s “illegal” move of embassy to occupied Jerusalem, Egyptian state news agency MENA reported on Monday, citing an Arab diplomat.

Mena said the meeting will be held on Wednesday at the level of permanent representatives to the Arab League “to counter the illegal decision taken by the United States of America to transfer its embassy to Jerusalem”.

Washington is due to officially move its embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem on Monday in a move that has infuriated Palestinians.
