US warned over stance on Jerusalem

Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, head of the Arab League, urged the US to reconsider any recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital at an extraordinary meeting in Cairo on Wednesday.

Palestinian leaders warned President Donald Trump of dangerous repercussions for Middle East peace efforts which could end Washington’s role as a mediator between Israelis and Palestinians. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital crosses a red line and Turkey’s response could go as far as cutting diplomatic ties with Israel. EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini also warned of a devastating effect.
