Qatar rejects US move on Jerusalem

The Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani received a written message from the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, relating to the possibility of the US administration move to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or transfer of the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Ambassador of Palestine to Qatar Munir Abdullah Ghannam delivered the message to the Emir, who affirmed Qatar's firm stance towards the Palestinian issue and Jerusalem because of its religious and political importance for Arabs, Muslims and the whole world.
Qatar has rejected any measure calling for the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Such measures undermine the international efforts aiming at the implementation of the two-state solution, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
The source reiterated Qatar's firm position in support of the Palestinian cause and the rights of Palestinian people, foremost of which is the establishment of an independent and sovereign state on the basis of the June 4, 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.
