Berri Calls for Parliament Meeting to Discuss Jerusalem

Speaker Nabih Berri called for a parliament meeting strictly dedicated to discuss the developments following US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the National News Agency reported on Thursday.

"Berri called for a parliament meeting on Friday to discuss the Jerusalem issue," said NNA.

The meeting will be held Friday afternoon, NNA added.

Berri's call comes one day after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital earlier on Wednesday, in a historic decision that overturns decades of U.S. policy and risks triggering a fresh spasm of violence in the Middle East.
