Palestine Demands Arab Boycott of States Moving Embassies to Al-Quds
Local Editor

Palestinian diplomat and the member of the Parliament Saeb Erekat called on Arab nations to sever ties with countries that move their embassies in the Zionist entity to the occupied holy city of al-Quds.


Erekat on Monday slammed President of Paraguay Horacio Cartes for his decision to move his country's embassy to the occupied city. Paraguay is the third country, after the US and Guatemala, to move its embassy to the holy city.

"We are already in contact with several allies to advance with the necessary diplomatic steps against the recent illegal moving of the embassies of Paraguay, Guatemala and the United States, to al-Quds," Erekat said in a statement.

"We particularly call upon Arab countries that host diplomatic missions of these countries to implement the previous resolutions of the Arab League of 1980, 1990 and 2000 to ‘sever all ties with states that transfer their embassies to al-Quds or recognize al-Quds as the capital of "Israel",'" he added.

UNSC Resolution 478, adopted in 1980, condemned the Zionist entity's 1980 "Jerusalem" [al-Quds] Law, which declared al-Quds to be the Zionist entity's "complete and united" capital, as a violation of international law.

The resolution also called upon member states to withdraw their diplomatic missions from the holy city.

The resolution passed with 14 votes for and none against; the United States was the only nation to abstain from the vote. Since then, all nations have maintained embassies outside of al-Quds, mostly in Tel Aviv.
