Egypt Parliament's speaker، Ali Abdel Aal opened the plenary session Sunday، shouting Jerusalem is Palestinian. Members of Parliament applauded following Abdel Aal speech.
Parliament members chanted “Jerusalem is Palestinian” as well. Egypt fought for Palestine in 1948، 1956 and 1967 wars، said Abdel Aal.
He pointed out that Egypt made sacrifices for the Palestinian cause and will exert all necessary efforts until solving this issue.
Abdel Aal described Trump’s decision on Jerusalem as “the mindless decision”.
He confirmed that the parliament had issued a strong worded statement rejecting U.S decision and insisted that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.
Abdel Aal pointed out that Egypt defended the Palestinian cause during Arab League meeting.
He explained that he participated at Arab Parliaments Heads meeting in Morocco, last week, to discuss ways to solve that issue.
Noteworthy, Arab League hold an emerging session last week to discuss ways to solve the thoughtless decision of U.S Trump who decided to move U.S embassy to occupied East Jerusalem.
Earlier, Trump had recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announced plans to move US embassy there، a move expected to inflame tensions in the region and unsettle the prospects for peace.
