His Holiness Aram I, this morning both at the World General National Assembly of the Catholicosate, currently taking place in Antelias, and during his visit to the president of Lebanon H.E. General Michel Aoun, rejected the U.S. recognition of occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

According to His Holiness, such a move may have negative repercussions in a volatile region of the Middle East and may jeopardize the peace process. Catholicos Aram I also emphasized the need to respect the legitimate rights of palestinians and to preserve the rights of three monotheistic religions in Jerusalem.
