JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – The ambassadors of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar to Jordan on Tuesday visited Jerusalem and were given a tour in the Old City escorted by the Palestinian Authority’s minister of Jerusalem affairs Adnan al-Husseini.

Al-Husseini updated Abdullah Nasser al-Amiri and Zayid Ibn Said al-Khayran on the Jerusalem residents' suffering caused by the Israeli procedures including attempts to create facts on the ground and said Israel wanted to turn the city into a pure Jewish city.

The ambassadors visited the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of Holy Sepulcher.

The visit, said al-Husseini, was very important as it reflected Arab countries’ efforts to keep in touch with their Palestinian brothers and support them so they can stay firm in their lands.

The UAE’s ambassador al-Amiri highlighted that his country keeps following up with the Palestinians at all levels. Jerusalem, he said, is a very important holy city for Arabs and Muslims.

“We came here to the holy land to congratulate our Christian brothers on the occasion of Christmas embodying brotherhood between Muslim mosques and Christian churches because both are very important for the UAE.”

For his part, al-Khayarin said he was happy to visit Jerusalem and Palestine for the first time.

“The establishment of a Palestinian state is like sunrise to us. This state will see the light hopefully and liberate its land and have complete sovereignty on pre-1967 territory with East Jerusalem as its capital.”

''The visit, said al-Husseini, was very important as it reflected Arab countries’ efforts to keep in touch with their Palestinian brothers and support them so they can stay firm in their lands. '' That statement and comment comes as a suprise to me, since this is their first vist to the Holy Land in 64 years.
