Arab League to work for Palestinian causetext_fields
The Arab League foreign ministers conversed at a meeting hosted by Egypt on Monday to restore a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The ministers adopted a resolution to reconcile peace talks, frozen since 2014, to end years of rivalry between the Palestinians and Israel. The secretary-general of the League of Arab States Ahmed Aboul Gheit stated that any threat to Arab land was a threat to the entire nation. He condemned the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and claimed it a dangerous obstacle to the two-state solution.
The Arabs foreign ministers also welcomed a preliminary ruling by the International Criminal Court (ICC) which concluded that Palestinian territorial jurisdiction extends to Gaza, East Jerusalem and the West Bank, the territories occupied by Israel since 1967. The Arab League appreciated the Palestinian resolution efforts and the move to hold elections in the state.
Though the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan have normalized ties with Israel, they backed the two-state solution and extended support to the Palestinian cause.
Arab foreign ministers also discussed the recent regional developments, the functioning of the Arab League, and the Biden administration's foreign policies.
