AMMAN - Jordan plans to convene emergency meetings of the Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation next Saturday and Sunday on how to face the "dangerous" consequences of US President Donald Trump's decision to move Washington's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the foreign minister said.

The kingdom is holding consultations with Arab League members in its capacity as president of the Arab summit and also with Turkey which holds the chairmanship of the OIC, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al Safadi told Reuters.
