Palestinians seeking full membership with the United Nations have just received the support of the Arab League.
Reportedly, the Arab League is now backing Palestinians’ U.N. press, in large part because of President Donald Trump’s announced intent to move the U.S. Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Here’s a quick video of that angle:
Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi made the announcement on behalf of the Arab League just recently.
The Algemeiner has more:
The Palestinians will seek full membership in the United Nations with the backing of the Arab League in response to the recent US policy changes on Jerusalem, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said on Saturday.
“We will confront the decision by seeking a [UN] resolution, an international one, to recognize a Palestinian state on 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital,” Safadi said.
Safadi’s comments came after a meeting of six Arab foreign ministers — from Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority (PA) — in the Jordanian capital of Amman.
PA President Mahmoud Abbas said last month that the Palestinians would seek full membership in the UN and ultimately apply to join all 522 official international organizations in response to President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announcement of plans to move the US embassy to that city.
