Few hours ago، a seminar entitled ”One Hundred Years on the Balfour Declaration” launched in Cairo، in the presence of Palestinian Ambassador to Egypt، Diab Allouh and Chairman of House of Books Dr. Ahmed Al-Shawki.
During the opening speech، Shawki condemned U.S president Trump of recognizing Jerusalem as an Israeli capital.
Moreover، Al-Shawki added that Jerusalem is an Arab Palestinian territory.
He stressed that Trump’s decision didn’t change the reality of Jerusalem identity، yet it worsens the situation and brought the Palestinian issue back to the forefront of the scene.
Al-Shawki pointed to the importance of telling the future generations about the crimes of the Zionist enemy and the Palestinian on their lands.
For his part، Allouh said that the Palestinians will not accept any settlement without Jerusalem as Palestinian capital.
Allouh pointed out that U.S is no longer a sponsor of peace. US has become a rival to the Palestinians.
Noteworthy، President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday and announced plans to relocate the US embassy there، a move expected to inflame tensions in the region and unsettle the prospects for peace.
