The Arab League said Wednesday that Arab foreign ministers will meet early next month to discuss steps against US President Donald Trump's recognition of al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the "Israeli" entity's so-called capital.

The meeting of the League's Council will be held on February 1 in Cairo, its general secretariat said in a memo obtained by AFP.

Trump's decision in December to relocate the US embassy to al-Quds from Tel Aviv sparked deadly clashes in Palestinian territories and was rejected in a non-binding UN General Assembly resolution.

Jordan said on Saturday that the League would seek international recognition of the Palestinian state with east al-Quds as its capital following the US move.

In a resolution after an emergency meeting in December, Arab foreign ministers urged the US to rescind its decision and said Washington had "withdrawn itself as a sponsor and broker" of the "Israeli"-Palestinian so-called peace process.

The "Israeli" entity occupied east al-Quds and the West Bank in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed east al-Quds in a move never recognized by the international community.

The city's status is among the most contentious issues in the "Israeli"-Palestinian conflict.

The international community does not recognize the ancient city as the "Israeli" entity's so-called capital, insisting the issue can only be resolved in negotiations.
