CAIRO – 29 July 2018: The 100th round of the Conference of Supervisors on Palestinian Affairs in the host Arab countries kicked off at the premises of the Arab League in Cairo on Sunday.
The gathering is held in the presence of Arab League Deputy Secretary General of Palestine and the Occupied Arab Territories Said Abu Ali and with the participation of the host countries Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Lebanon.
Representatives of the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization, the Islamic Cooperation Organization and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization are also present.
The conference discusses the developments of the Palestinian issue and serious Israeli violations of the rights of the Palestinian people, especially as regards the issue of Jerusalem after the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize it as Israel’s capital.
Subsequent Arab and Islamic movements to counter this decision, which is contrary to all international resolutions of legitimacy are also on the agenda.
The gathering will also mull the work of UNRWA and its financial situation, after another US decision to reduce Washington’s funding of the agency, a step that threatens 5.5 million Palestinian refugees in the host Arab countries.
