The foreign ministers of Jordan and the UAE affirm the cessation of Israeli measures in Jerusalem

UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed and his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi stressed, on Tuesday, the need to stop all "illegal" Israeli measures that undermine the two-state solution, after an Israeli minister stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque .

The Emirates News Agency said that the two ministers considered the Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir's storming of the mosque's courtyard, on Tuesday, "a violation of international law and a dangerous escalation."

The two ministers stressed the need for Israel to respect the historical and legal status quo and not to prejudice the authority of the powers of administering Jerusalem and the affairs of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
