CAIRO, Dec 7 (Reuters) - The kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Thursday condemned the decision by US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Saudi Royal Court issued a statement saying that the kingdom followed "with deep sorrow" Trump's decision and warned of "dangerous consequences of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem."

The statement also urged the US administration to reverse its decision and adhere to international will.

Saudi Arabia described the decision as an "unjustified and irresponsible step" and said it represents "a bias against rights of Palestinian people."

Saudi Arabia also said the move represents "a big step back in efforts to advance the peace process" and said it was "a violation of the US Neutral position regarding Jerusalem."
