Algeria denounces United States recognition of Al Quds as capital of Israel

Algeria denounces United States recognition of Al Quds as capital of Israel”

Any such action violates worldwide law and the resolutions of the UN Security Council, especially 478 of 1980, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

Moroccan King Mohammed VI, in his capacity of Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee of the International Islamic Conference, on Wednesday dispatched a letter to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, expressing deep concern over United States recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and its decision to transfer the American embassy there. This includes any attempted annexation of East Jerusalem as a violation of worldwide law.

Expressing its concerns, Pakistan also called upon the UN Security Council to take cognisance of this situation and take steps in accordance with the UN Charter.

"Trump's plan to shift [the] USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem is contrary to all United Nations resolutions and is an attempt to deliberately add to the chaos in the Middle East", Imran tweeted.

"By moving the embassy, [the] U.S. will practically alter the status of Jerusalem".

A statement issued by the Prime Minister Office stated that shifting the USA embassy to the "occupied city of Al-Quds Al-Sharif will alter the legal and historical status of the city".

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif also took to twitter to condemn the USA move. "It's unilateral and an unfortunate decision which undermines the peace process".

Jerusalem is considered a sacred place, which is home to Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
