Kataeb Chief: Joint Efforts Must Be Exerted to Reverse Trump Jerusalem Move

Kataeb chief Samy Gemayel phone called Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday to express his rejection of the U.S. decision to recongize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, voicing deep concern over the repercussions that this move will entail on the right of the Palestinian people to return to its homeland after decades of suffering.

Gemayel outlined the need for joint Arab and international efforts efforts to halt this step, saying that it undermines the peace process in the region.

The Kataeb chief stressed that Jerusalem, the cradle of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, should be an open city for all cultures, religions and civilizations.
