At the Arab League emergency meeting held on Saturday in Cairo, Arab foreign ministers voiced rejection to the recently released US Middle East peace plan.
"Rejection of the US-Israeli 'Deal of the Century' comes as it does not fulfil the minimum rights and aspirations of the Palestinian people," said the final communiqué issued by the foreign ministers following the meeting.
The statement described as "unfair" the peace deal, announced on Jan. 28 by US President Donald Trump, in the presence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
