Newspaper review: dailies highlight Arab foreign ministers' meeting in Amman

Newspaper review: dailies highlight Arab foreign ministers' meeting in Amman

The White House said on Monday U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will visit the region from January 20 to 23, embarking on a tour originally planned for December after Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he agreed with Trump's reported decision to cut funding.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants a United Nations agency serving Palestinian refugees to "disappear" because he believes their descendants are a threat to Israel's existence.

The top PLO official revealed that the upcoming PLO Central Council meeting will "define the relationship with Israel in all its aspects and how to confront the USA decision".

Arab vigilance must continue especially in the wake of the recent Knesset decision making the ceding of any part of Jerusalem to the Palestinians virtually impossible.

The meeting came after US President Donald Trump's decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel on December 6, which enraged Palestinians and triggered weeks of unrest in the West Bank and Gaza.

Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of Israeli and Palestinian states, the British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has told his Palestinian counterpart Riyad al-Malki.

The Trump administration already had a credibility problem with many Palestinians because of his equivocal attitude toward a two-state solution, in which an independent Palestinian state would exist alongside Israel.

"We pay HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don't even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel. with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?"

Arab states would also discuss whether to convene an extraordinary summit of their leaders or wait until a scheduled summit in the Saudi capital Riyadh at the end of March, he added.

The Arab League said at the time the move would spur violence throughout the region and described Trump's announcement as a "dangerous violation of worldwide law" which had no legal impact. Most countries consider as illegal the Israeli settlements built in the territory which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

The Trump administration announced this week it would be cutting security assistance to the Pakistani government for its alleged role in providing safe haven for terrorist groups. Nonetheless, White House officials have continued to say they intend to put forward a plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
