UAE calls for Arab League’s meeting on Palestine

(Cairo) – Council of the Arab League endorsed a call by the United Arab Emirates for an emergency meeting for Arab foreign ministers to discuss the Israeli aggressions against Palestinians, attempts to judaise Jerusalem as well as Israel’s continued desecration of the Al Aqsa Mosque and holy sites.
This came at the conclusion of an extraordinary meeting of permanent representatives, chaired by Emirati Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative to the Arab League, Mohammed Nakhira Al Dhaheri.
The UAE ambassador called for the Arab foreign ministerial meeting to make a resolution that would stop Israeli crimes and protect people and Jerusalem holy sites. “We have to take a serious stand to further urge the international community to shoulder its responsibilities,” he said.
The meeting was requested by Palestine and in addition to the UAE, it is backed by Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
At meeting, the Council of the Arab League blamed the international community and the UN Security Council for not protecting the Palestinian people from what it described as crimes that amount to war crimes against humanity.
It insisted on holding Israel to account and bringing perpetrators to international justice.
The council also urged the international community to act resolutely against the Israeli government’s incitement of killing and hate.
The Arab League’s body called upon the international community to designate groups of Israeli settlers as terrorist organisations and bring them to international courts. It additionally urged for international financial and political support for Palestinians in Jerusalem and a Palestinian strategic development plan in the city.
