  • Description

    There's been a major outcry by Arab nations over Canada's decision to move its Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Nine Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, warned last Thursday (7 June) in a statement issued in Canada that they would take `appropriate measures' if the plan was carried out. The arabs consider that moving the Embassy to Jerusalem would be tantamount to Canadian recognition of Israeli sovereignty in the divided city, which Israel has always considered its capital. The Mayor of the West Bank town of Ramallah Karim Khalaf strongly criticised the decision of the new Canadian government of Prime Minister, Joe Clark to change the site of the Embassy.
