Arab League to hold extraordinary meeting on ‘illegal’ US Embassy move to Jerusalem – report

The Arab League will hold an extraordinary meeting to discuss Washington’s “illegal” move of embassy to Jerusalem, MENA news agency reported an Arab diplomat as saying on Monday. 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 US to transfer its embassy to Jerusalem,” the diplomat said. Washington will officially move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday. The decision has infuriated Palestinians. A US consular building in the Arnona neighborhood will house an interim embassy for the ambassador and a small staff until a larger site is found.
