Saudi Calls for Break with States which Transfer Embassy to Jerusalem
Saudi Arabia on Sunday called for a cut in diplomatic relations with any country that transfers its embassy in Israel to the disputed holy city of Jerusalem.
"It is our duty to underline the need to break diplomatic relations with any country which transfers its embassy to Jerusalem," said Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz at the Islamic summit in Doha.
The proposal, part of measures proposed to Islamic leaders by their foreign ministers at a preparatory meeting, was seen to target the United States, a close ally of Riyadh, whose Congress has proposed such a move -- DOHA (AFP)
