RAMALLAH, April 16 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian National Authority (PNA) on Monday welcomed the decisions made on the Arab League (AL) Summit held in Saudi Arabia.

The Arab summit stressed in its final statement the importance of ongoing efforts to establish a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital on the borders of 1967.

The statement described the Palestinian cause as a central issue of the Arab world.

It also voiced rejection of the Arab countries to the Israel's Judaization of Jerusalem and U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of the holy city as Israel's capital last December.

In a statement to official radio Voice of Palestine, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki underlined the importance of the decisions made by the Arab nations in support of the Palestinian people and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), UN's refugee relief body.

He also revealed that official letters would be sent to Saudi Arabia, chair of the summit, and the AL General Secretariat to call for synchronized measures to implement the Palestinian-related decisions.
