Palestinian FM warns of serious situation in Jerusalem

Visiting Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki sounded the alarm here Thursday about the serious situation in the occupied city of Jerusalem due to Israeli Judaization.
Speaking at a joint news conference with Algerian Foreign Minister Murad Madlasi, he said the situation in Jerusalem is so serious that Arab and Muslim summit conferences should be held.
"Israeli authorities are seeking to fully Judaize the holy city (Jerusalem) and to cancel its Islamic and Christian features as well as to impose new realities on the ground," he said.
He unveiled an Israeli plan to complete the Judaization of Jerusalem and to force the largest possible number of Muslims and Christians out of the city by the year 2020.
On inter-Palestinian reconciliation, the Palestinian foreign minister said fervent efforts are being exerted in order to finish the file of reconciliation among all Palestinian factions as soon as possible.
