NNA - Kataeb Party leader, MP Sami Gemayel, contacted by phone the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, stressing "the solidarity of the Kataeb Party and its support for the right to reject the decision to consider Jerusalem as the capital of Israel."

He expressed deep concern over "this step and its implications on the right of return for the Palestinian people after decades of suffering and dispersion."

The MP called for "strong Arab and international efforts to hinder this step, which undermines the peace process in the region based on the decisions of the Beirut summit and international resolutions."

"Jerusalem, the land of peace and the cradle of the three heavenly religions, must be an open city for all cultures, religions and civilizations," Gemayel said.
