AMMONNEWS - Arab foreign ministers will hold an emergency in Cairo on Saturday upon Jordan's request to discuss the US president's intention to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the US embassy to the city.

Jordan's Ambassador to Egypt and its permanent representative to the Arab League Ali Al Ayed said the meeting of the Arab League Council, which will be held at the ministerial level, will discuss measures that will be taken to deal with the US decision and its dangerous repercussions with a view to defending Jerusalem and its legal, historical and religious status.

He told Petra that Jordan's request was approved by a number of Arab countries due to the importance of Jerusalem for Arabs and Muslims.
