"Trump says he has a project".

"In line with UN Security Council resolutions, foreign ministers of Arab states reject any kind of unilateral steps meant to change the internationally accepted status of Jerusalem", the ministers said. The Arab League, in a statement issued after an emergency session in Cairo, called Trump's announcement a "dangerous violation of global law" which had no legal impact and was void.

Separately on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was wrapping up a state visit to France, during which he met with President Emanuel Macron.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow is "seriously concerned" over Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In Israel, the move was embraced as a long overdue acknowledgement of Israel's seat of parliament and government and the historic capital of the Jewish people dating back 3,000 years.

"The talks will address the development related to the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the ways to deal with the crisis in a manner that preserves the rights of the Palestinian people, their national sanctities and their legitimate right to establish their own independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital", said Bassam Rady in the statement.

Egypt said during a recent UN Security Council emergency meeting that "the position of Jerusalem as an occupied city does not and will not change", stressing that the UN resolutions and the global community agree that Jerusalem is among the Palestinian territories that have been occupied by Israel since 1967.

The ministers met at the league's headquarters in Cairo to formulate a response to the United States decision, which has been roundly criticised in the Arab world and internationally.

"The United States has crossed all the red lines with the Jerusalem decision".

In Cairo, the head of Egypt's largest Christian church announced he would not meet US Vice President Mike Pence when he visits Cairo on December 20.

"The European Union, cowards, are doing all they can so a pro-Palestinian terrorist movement can have supremacy over a pro-Israeli movement", said Zeman, presenting himself as a defender of Israel.

Thousands of Palestinians later marched in funerals for the two men.

However, neither the Palestinian President nor the U.S. Vice President has confirmed the information so far.

There were fresh clashes Saturday as Palestinian protesters in the occupied West Bank hurled stones at Israeli troops who responded with tear gas, rubber bullets and live rounds.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard was seriously wounded and his attacker arrested. In the West Bank there were dozens of injuries, but no deaths.

The French President reaffirmed his "disapproval of Mr Trump's controversial move, saying the United States had "unilaterally recognised something that is not complying with the global law". On Wednesday, he called an urgent meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Turkey next week.
