Arab League censures Brazil’s decision to open trade office in occupied al-QudsTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_The pan-Arab organization criticized Brazil’s move as a violation of international law and voiced its continued support for the Palestinian cause plus the legal status of Jerusalem al-Quds at an emergency meeting convened in the Egyptian Cairo on Thursday.

“This unilateral and unlawful action” is a bias toward Israel and supports Israel's “illegal policies aimed at controlling the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem),” the Arab League said.

It further noted that such a “negative change in Brazilian foreign policy toward Palestinians would seriously damage Arab-Brazilian shared political, economic and diplomatic interests.”

It expressed “deep regret” that the Brazilian government had reversed its decades-long Mideast policy.

Meanwhile, Kuwait’s representative, Ambassador Ahmed al-Bakr, expressed his country’s “complete rejection of any act of prejudice toward the legal status of” Jerusalem al-Quds.

He added that Brazil’s opening of a technical office in the city constitutes a “clear and obvious violation of international resolutions.”

Algeria also warned that Brazil’s step would inflame tensions in the Middle East region, and undermine efforts for the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It urged the Brazilian government to reevaluate its decision.
