CAIRO - 14 May 2018: Al Azhar condemned on Monday Washington's insistence on relocating the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem.
According to a statement, the U.S. decision was widely rejected worldwide, pointing out that some countries are biased towards the arrogance at the expense of the values of justice and rights, a matter which would endanger stability and peace.
The statement added that the US decision posed a challenge to the feelings of 1.5 billion Muslims across the world and also violated the sanctities of "our Christian bothers".
It appealed to the governments and people who believe in the values of justice and freedoms to do their duty towards Jerusalem and the Palestinians.
