Moroccan King Mohammed VI, in his capacity of Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee of the International Islamic Conference, on Wednesday dispatched a letter to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, expressing deep concern over USA recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and its decision to transfer the American embassy there.

According to Trump, the U.S. State Department has already begun preparations for the relocation of Washington's Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It is a serious setback to the rule of law and global norms.

Pakistan urged the United Sates to revisit its decision as soon as possible in order to avoid the potentially grave repercussions in the region and beyond.
