Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has emphasised to his Israeli counterpart the significance of calming the situation at Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque.

In a call with the Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yair Lapid, Sheikh Abdullah stressed the need to cease any activity that violated the sanctity of the place of worship.

His Highness also highlighted the need to respect the legal and historical status quo of Jerusalem and to respect Jordan’s guardianship over the holy sites under international law.

The UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation welcomed the Israeli government’s decision to halt the ‘Israeli Flags March’ from reaching the Bab al-Amud area, as well as preventing non-Muslim visitors from entering the Al-Aqsa courtyards from this Friday until the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

”Our region needs stability and to work together in order to move forward in development along all paths so as to achieve the aspirations of our peoples for progress and prosperity,” Sheikh Abdullah said.

He also congratulated the Israeli Foreign Minister on the occasion of Passover and said that he looks forward to enhancing joint cooperation with the State of Israel in all domains and to work together to boost peace and stability in the region.
