Jordan and the Palestinians on Wednesday requested an emergency Arab foreign ministers’ meeting to discuss US President Donald Trump’s plan to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Arab League said.

The meeting is likely to be convened on Saturday, a diplomatic source told AFP.

Before the plan’s announcement late on Tuesday, Arab League member state delegates issued a joint statement saying it would constitute a “clear assault on the Arab nation and the rights of Palestinians and all Muslims and Christians”.
