Arab FMs in Cairo strategize on Jerusalem

Riyad Al-Maliki

The U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees is asking Arab nations for financial support after the Trump administration cut tens of millions of dollars of aid money.

Kuwait's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al- Sabah warned that the current status quo in the occupied Palestinian territories will reflect negatively on regional and global peace and security. The Arab League Council decided, during the meeting to reach out to the world's main players to set up an global multilateral mechanism for sponsoring the Middle East peace process under auspices of the United Nations.

On December 21, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) overwhelmingly passed a non-binding resolution condemning Trump's decision and called on states not to move their diplomatic missions to Jerusalem.

China accuses USA of 'Cold War mentality' over nuclear policy
It says Russian Federation and China are rapidly modernizing their nuclear capabilities. He noted that the U.S. owns the world's largest nuclear arsenal.

"We will focus in particular on halting the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and stop Israeli settlement construction, confiscation of land and attempts to empty it of its Muslim and Christian Arab population in a flagrant violation of global law and relevant worldwide legitimacy resolutions".

The ministers renewed their rejection of any resolution recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli occupation, and considered the transfer of diplomatic missions to it as a violation to the global law and the resolutions of worldwide legitimacy.

Israeli soldiers shot, Friday, eleven Palestinians with live rounds, and rubber-coated steel bullets, at the northern entrance of al-Biereh city, in the Ramallah and al-Biereh governorate, in central West Bank.

'We're battling to be first of the last' - Mourinho concedes title defeat
Mourinho has yet to reveal the full extent of Fellaini's injury although the United manager expects him to be absent for weeks. He said: "Of course we are sad for the dropped two points, but to come here and play the way we played is nearly impossible".

The resolution stressed the need to boycott the Israeli occupation and its colonial regime as one of the effective and legitimate means to resist to and end the occupation and save the two-state solution and the peace process. The League's Secretariat briefed the ministerial meeting on a media plan in support of the Palestinian people, particularly the Arab residents of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is a city considered holy by Muslim, Christian, and Jewish believers.

The Arab minister also emphasized the rejection of attempts to end the role and mandate of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (UNRWA) through the systematic Israeli campaigns and the reduction of its funding by the USA administration.
