Amman condemns Kosovo, Serbia’s decision to move embassies to Jerusalem

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates on Monday inveighed against the decision of both Kosovo and Serbia to move their embassies to Jerusalem, describing it as a “flagrant violation” of international law.

 

Daifallah Fayez, the Ministry’s spokesperson, said that the decision flouts international resolutions, foremost of which are the UN’s Security Council resolutions 476, 478 and 2334. He highlighted that the resolutions clearly state that East Jerusalem is an occupied territory where international law is applied.

 

He said that establishing a Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967, borders with East Jerusalem as its capital is the only means to establish a lasting peace to the conflict.

 

Fayez commended the EU for its position against moving embassies and diplomatic missions to Jerusalem.
