0

Riyadh : Saudi Arabia expressed on Tuesday concern over media reports that the US intends to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate its embassy there.

The kingdom reiterated its support for the Palestinian people in asserting their legitimate rights and in establishing an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The US “step, if taken, will be in contradiction of the principle of not affecting final status negotiations and contradicts international resolutions that emphasize the historical and firm rights of the Palestinian people regarding Jerusalem”, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
