Arab states urge U.S. to abandon Jerusalem move - statement

CAIRO (Reuters) - Arab foreign ministers on Sunday urged the United States to abandon its decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying the move would increase violence throughout the region.

The announcement by President Donald Trump on Wednesday was a “dangerous violation of international law” and had no legal impact, the Arab League said in a statement after several hours of meetings attended by all its members in Cairo.
