The final resolution of the XXV Arab Summit does not recognise Israel as a Jewish State and at the time emphasized that this rejection of Israel’s demands as “absolute and definitive”, endorsing Palestine’s proposal. The Arab Heads of State meeting in Kuwait put the responsibility “for obstructing the peace process entirely on Israel’s shoulders,” in reference to current conversations between the Israelis and Palestinians, in which one of the pitfalls is the aforementioned recognition of a Jewish State.
They equally manifest their endorsement of the creation of an independent Palestinian State within the 1967 borders, with its capital in East Jerusalem, in agreement with the Arab peace initiative and international resolutions. The Arab leaders reject the Israeli measures for placing a demographic change in East Jerusalem and its policy for construction and amplification of colonies in the occupied Palestinian territories, and ask for “respect of Palestinian legitimacy strengthened by President Mahmud Abbas” and reconciliation between the Fatah and Hamas factions to create a unified Government in a Palestinian State.
On Wednesday, March 26, exactly when the Arab Summit decided to not recognise the State of Israel, The American Secretary of State John Kerry met with the Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas in Amman, to promote peace talks with Israel and attempt to extend the current round of negotiations. Abbas has no intention of giving in on this point if Israel doesn’t compromise on stopping the construction of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories; according to Mahmud Abbas, Israel has authorized the construction of 10,000 colonies since the current round of negotiations began eight months, pushed by the United States.
