In his speech on Jerusalem, Trump said Israeli and Palestinians should decide the final borders of the city, emphasizing that the United States was not taking a position on their final status.
His Majesty King Abdullah met Saturday with the Arab League ministerial taskforce that the Arab foreign ministers had appointed to conduct a follow-up on the Arab decisions to counter and frustrate US President Donald Trump's last month recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his decision to move his country's embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.
Earlier this week, President Trump tweeted: "We pay hundreds of millions of dollars a year and get no appreciation or respect".
Johnson said via a statement from the Foreign Office today: 'I reiterated the UK's commitment to supporting the Palestinian people and the two-state solution, the urgent need for renewed peace negotiations, and the UK's clear and longstanding position on the status of Jerusalem. Israel claims the entire city as its capital, while the Palestinians want the eastern sector as the capital of their future state.
They said in remarks that the Arab ministers fully agreed to work together to counter the USA decision and its repercussions and support the Palestinian "brethren" to achieve their legitimate rights, including the right to freedom and to set up their independent state on June 4, 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu trod carefully on Sunday around a threatened US aid cut to Palestinians, stopping short of backing a funding halt as he repeated calls for a United Nations agency that helps Palestinian refugees to be dismantled.
Several days after Trump's speech, Palestinian Authority [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas announced that the Palestinians will no longer accept Washington as an interlocutor in the peace process between the PA and Israel.
"The president has basically said he doesn't want to give any additional funding, or stop funding, until the Palestinians agree to come back to the negotiation table", Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters when asked about future USA funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees.
Additionally, unlike other refugees, only Palestinian refugees have their own UN Agency: UNRWA.
There will be no stability and security in the region without a solution that guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on pre-June 4, 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, added the minister.
Israel, which withdrew troops and settlers from the Gaza Strip in 2005, has called the pre-1967 war West Bank boundaries indefensible and has pledged to hold on to all of Jerusalem forever.
The Arab League said at the time the move would spur violence throughout the region and described Trump's announcement as a "dangerous violation of worldwide law" which had no legal impact.
An worldwide research institute funded by the Norwegian government recently examined if Israeli Arabs should be integrated into the PLO in order to increase their involvement in the Palestinians' struggle against Israel.
