The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has expressed grave concern over reports implying that the United States of America intends to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy to Jerusalem, state news agency SPA reported on Tuesday.

The Kingdom warned that such a decision would further complicate the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and obstruct the ongoing efforts to revive the peace process. It is in contradiction with international resolutions that emphasize the historical and firm rights of the Palestinian People regarding Jerusalem.

Quoting a source at the Saudi Foreign Ministry, SPA said that the recognition will have very serious implications and will be provocative to all Muslims’ feelings.
