Kuwait's top lawmaker warns of "temporary" moves over Jerusalem.

RABAT, Dec 15 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim said on Friday there should not be only "temporary" moves towards Jerusalem, calling for continuing response to the recent US decision over the holy city. Al-Ghanim made the press statement following the conclusion of the emergency Arab parliament summit held in the Moroccan capital, Rabat, which focused on US President Donald Trump's recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. "The reaction should not be temporary. Rather, it should continue in order to avert similar future decisions and to stop this unjust decision which affected all Muslims, Arab Christians and humanity as well as all sympathizers with this just issue," he said. Kuwait's top lawmaker pointed out a Kuwaiti working paper put on table during the Rabat summit, which included practical steps and concrete measures, including moves through Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU). Al-Ghanim hoped that there would be stronger international, rather than Arab or Islamic, response to Washington's recent controversial move over Jerusalem. Earlier on Thursday, the Kuwaiti parliament speaker said that a unified Arab stance on the regional and international level was needed against the recent US move on Jerusalem. Addressing the Rabat summit, he said that Arabs must unite themselves against injustice and should not isolate themselves from what is occurring in the international scene; otherwise, the enemy (Israel) will continue the aggression against the Palestinian people.
