UAE condemns US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital

The United Arab Emirates has condemned the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

A statement from the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation expressed deep concern over the repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region.

They said it inflames the emotions of the people due to the status of Jerusalem in the conscience of Arabs and Muslims.

It added that the decision is against the will of Palestinians and does not change the fact that Jerusalem has been occupied.
