Rabat – King Mohammed VI has received on Saturday a letter from US President Donald Trump. In the letter, Trump responded to the message that he received from the King regarding the “US Administration decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

In his letter, Trump voiced “his gratitude for the leadership of King at the League of the Arab States and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. Trump has also affirmed that he also shares “the importance of the city of Jerusalem for the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.”

“Jerusalem is and must remain a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross and where Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque,” said Trump.

Trump has also expressed his determination to “reach a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.”

For the peace process, Trump has also reaffirmed his support for “ a two-state solution if agreed to by both sides.” The US President added that the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem are part of final status negotiations.”

Trump’s letter, which was reported by Maghreb Arab Press (MAP), said that the US does not take a position on boundaries or borders.

On December 5, 2017, a day before Trump’s announcement, King Mohammed VI sent a message to Trump expressing his “deep concern” over his willingness to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

In his message, the King wrote that the decision has drawn his “deep personal concern and the great concern of the Arab and Muslim States and peoples.”

“The city of Al-Quds must remain a land of cohabitation and a symbol of coexistence and tolerance for all,” said King Mohammed VI. “The city is not only important for the parties of the conflict, but also for believers in the three Abrahamic religions, due to its unique religious characteristics, its ancient identity, and its great political symbolism.”
