the recent events of transferring the US Embassy to the Arab city of Al-Qudus and the insistence that this Arab city is the capital of the Zionist entity is unacceptable and exciting to the anger of hundreds of millions of Arabs, Muslims and Christians all over the world and is a flagrant violation of international resolutions and the path of peace.

While we express our full solidarity with our Palestinian brothers, we express our categorical rejection of this measure and warn of the consequences of this step, which will have serious repercussions for the stability of the region and a negative impact on the political and security levels.

The success of the efforts of the Committee to prevent Israel from obtaining a seat in the Security Council, which was headed by His Excellency the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Al-Jaafari, and worked in cooperation with all friends and brothers to complete this historic task, which was successful with Israel's withdrawal from the request for temporary membership, The international community to the actions of this usurper entity

Violent measures used by the forces of the Zionist entity against civilians are a flagrant violation of human rights, and in this sense we strongly condemn the targeting of civilian demonstrators in Gaza, which caused the death of dozens and injuring hundreds of our Palestinian people

May Allah have mercy on the martyrs and on the wounded for the speedy recovery, glory and immortality of their pure lives, and Palestine has lived with Jerusalem as its capital.

Dr. Ahmed Mahjoob

Spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs
