Arab League: Trump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would fuel violence

CAIRO - Any move by the United States to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital would fuel extremism and violence, Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said on Saturday.


"Today we say very clearly that taking such action is not justified ... It will not serve peace or stability, but will fuel extremism and resort to violence," Aboul Gheit said in a statement published on the Arab League's website.


"It only benefits one side; the Israeli government that is hostile to peace," he added.
