Arab League to meet over U.S. support for Israeli settlements

CAIRO (Reuters) – The Arab League will hold an emergency meeting of foreign ministers on Monday to discuss Washington’s change of position on Israeli settlements in the West Bank, Egypt’s state news agency MENA said on Wednesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration on Monday abandoned the United States’s four-decade position that the settlements were “inconsistent with international law”.
