The Arab Parliament has called an emergency meeting to discuss the repercussions of the US administration's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, according to national news agency WAM

Arab Parliament Speaker, Dr Mishaal bin Fahm Al-Salami called the emergency meeting over the announcement yesterday that the United States would be relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv in Israel to Jerusalem. 

According to WAM: "In a statement on Wednesday, Dr. Al-Salami said that during the session, members of the Arab Parliament - representing various groups in Arab society - will issue a resolution to reflect the "pulse of the Arab street", following this "dangerous" decision by the US administration."

Dr. Al-Salami also said the decision is "a flagrant challenge to all international conventions and resolutions, a threat to international peace and security, and provokes the sentiments of Arabs, Muslims and the international community, alike."
