On 1 February, the Arab League chose to reject American President Donald Trump's controversial Mideast plan.
They say it doesn't meet the "minimum rights" of the Palestinians, as reported on by eNCA.
The league had a meeting in Cairo after America unveiled its plan which is felt to favour Israel.
Those present at the meeting included Saudi Arabia's foreign minister and the United Arab Emirates' minister of state for foreign affairs and Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas.
