HM the King Receives Letter from US President following the Sovereign’s Message on Jerusalem
20/01/2018

HM King Mohammed VI has received a letter from US President HE. Donald Trump, in response to the message sent to him recently by the Sovereign concerning “the decision of the US Administration to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer its embassy there”.

In his letter to the Sovereign, the US President expressed "his gratitude for the leadership of His Majesty the King at the League of Arab States and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation", and affirmed that he also shares "the importance of the city of Jerusalem for the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam".

“Jerusalem is and must remain a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross  and where Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque”, President Trump added.

Regarding the peace process, the US President stressed that he is "determined to reach a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians".

He also reiterated his support "for a two-state solution if agreed to by both sides”, adding that the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem are part of final status negotiations.

The US does not take a position on boundaries or borders, the US president concluded.

In his message to the US President, HM King Mohammed VI, Chairman of Al Quds Committee which is affiliated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, expressed his “deep concern and that of Arab and Muslim countries” following the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer the US Embassy to that city.

The Sovereign also underlined the paramount importance of the city of Jerusalem, not only to the parties to the conflict, but also to the followers of the three revealed religions. 

“As is clearly indicated in the relevant international resolutions, especially those of the Security Council, Jerusalem is at the heart of final status issues. For this reason, its legal status needs to be preserved and nothing should be undertaken that might affect its current political status,” HM the King said in the message.
