Egypt denies New York Times report on acceptance of US Jerusalem move

US delays Palestinian aid

The status of Jerusalem is among the most contentious in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"There is a political decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and we will strive to reach an global political decision to recognize a Palestinian state ... with (eastern) Jerusalem as its capital", Safadi said.

The Jordanian leader said the issue of Jerusalem should be settled through negotiations and as part of a lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis based on the two-state solution, the worldwide resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.

The decision was spurred by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's unwillingness to participate in peace talks with Israel following US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli state December 6.

The United States, which provides hundreds of millions of dollars a year for the Palestinians, could inflict great pain on the Palestinians by cutting off aid.

The decision has been taken days after President Trump threatened to withhold future aid payments to Palestinians, Axios news site reported.

"The Palestinian leadership will not accept any offers for negotiations unless the American decision on Jerusalem is annulled", Erekat said.

The King wanted the taskforce to maintain the momentum that was set in motion by the Arab world to combat the dire consequences of Trump's decision including campaigning effectively for the recognition of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

President Donald Trump's suggestion to cut funding from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency to the Palestinians is a serious mistake both politically and morally ("Palestinians, Israelis oppose USA aid threat", January 4).

While Israel took over East Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 war and declared the whole city as its eternal indivisible capital in 1980, it has not been recognized by the global community.

Mr Johnson said that the UK-Palestine relationship is "strong and long-standing" and that both he and Mr Al Malki had expressed a wish to "strengthen it further".

Palestinians, however, see East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they seek to establish in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The United States is the largest donor to UNRWA, with a pledge of almost $370 million as of 2016, according to the organisation's website.

One of the institutions' studies assesses how to involve Israeli Arabs into the Palestinians' anti-Israel campaign, suggesting that they be integrated into the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).

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 global law" which had no legal impact.
