King Abdullah: 'Rely on int'l opposition to Trump's J'lem decision'

King of Jordan Abdullah II and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in their Amman meeting that the decision by President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and transfer the US Embassy there was a violation of international law.

 

The king stressed the need for increased Arab and Muslim efforts to defend the rights of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims in the disputed capital.

 

In addition, Abdullah called to rely on international opposition to Trump's decision in order to head off any further unilateral decisions.
