Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the holy city of al-Quds will remain an Arab and Muslim city.
In a recent tweet, Zarif noted that if half of the money spent by some regional rulers to support terrorism, extremism, sectarianism and incitement against their neighbors was spent on liberation of Palestine, today we would not witness the US' nonsense remarks and its efforts to sanctify and consolidate "a fateful promise from those who do not own to those who do not deserve" [the Balfour Declaration].
"Like it or not, al-Quds will remain an Arab and Muslim city," reads the tweet.
Zarif's comments came after the announcement of US President Donald Trump that recognized the holy city of al-Quds as the so-called capital of the ‘Israeli' entity, and another decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds.
Trump's move sparked outrage around the world, with many countries witnessing protests denouncing what happened.
