The Coptic Orthodox Church has voiced great concern about media reports pertaining to a US intention to recognize al Quds as a capital of Israel.
This step violates all international conventions about al Quds, the Church said in a statement Wednesday, warning it would negatively affect stability in the Middle East and the world.
It stressed the need to maintain the legal status-quo of al Quds in line with international references and resolutions.
The Church said it supports all efforts to push forward the peace process, noting that negotiations are the only way to reach a just solution and comprehensive peace.
