Al-Jubeir had lambasted US decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem town saying the move will hamper the international efforts to end Arab-Israel conflict in Middle East.

"We extend our support to the Palestinians' right to establish their homeland based on the 1967 lines with the capital city Jerusalem, as stated in the international resolutions and Arab peace initiative," said Al-Jubeir during his speech at foreign ministers' preparatory meeting on Friday.

The administration of  Trump has recognised Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and declared to the US embassy to be located in Jerusalem.

The heads of state of Arab League will discuss the civil wars in Syria and Yemen.
