In a statement, MoFAIC ‏reiterated its firm position on the need to provide full protection for Al-Aqsa Mosque. As well as a halt to the serious and provocative violations taking place there. Furthermore, the UAE underscored the need to respect the custodial role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan over the holy sites. Which is in accordance with international law and the historical context at hand. Also, not to compromise the authority of the Jerusalem endowment that manages the affairs of the Mosque.
