Doha:  The Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani received a telephone call from the US President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening.

Talks during the phone call dealt with the bilateral relations and ways to boost them.

President Trump also informed Emir of his intention to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.    

For his part, Emir warned of the serious repercussions of this step, which would further complicate the situation in the Middle East and negatively affect the security and stability in the region.

The Emir reiterated Qatar's position on the Palestinian issue on the basis of the resolutions of international legitimacy and the Arab peace initiative based on the two-state solution, which guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders and with East Jerusalem as its capital.
