Newsline: Arab ‘diplomatic boycott’ suggested if US moves embassy to Jerusalem

Every Muslim state should close their embassy in the United States if the Trump administration moves the US embassy to Jerusalem, the president of the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union (AIPU) said. Nabih Berri, also speaker of the Lebanese Parliament, said President Trump may not postpone a US-congress decision to move the embassy, at a conference in Rabat, Morocco. “We must call for Palestinian national unity, its return to a central issue in the Arab consciousness and the building of trusting relationships between Muslim neighbours,” Berri said. Berri said that the decision to move the embassy required a “strong reaction” from a unified Muslim world, which would require “at the very least”, the closure of embassies.
