Arab League Sect.-Gen.: 'Israel has no sovereignty over Jerusalem'

Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit commented on President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and said that "the decision will not change the city's status in the eyes of international law."


Aboul Gheit spoke before the League's emergency assembly in Cairo and noted that "the decision harmed the Arab public's trust in the United States as sponsor of the peace process."


The secretary-general also called on world governments to refrain from following the American lead in moving their embassies to Jerusalem, adding the capital was "occupied territory over which Israel has no sovereignty."
