Morocco’s King Mohammed VI reasserted Friday that peace in the Middle East could only be established through a fair and comprehensive solution, guaranteeing the Palestinian people’s right to an independent state, with Jerusalem as a capital.  


This emerged in a message the King addressed to the international conference on the protection of Islamic and Christian shrines in Palestine, held in the capital of Rabat between June 7-8 by the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO).  


Furthermore, the Monarch warned that if the “Israeli aggressions and provocative acts continue”, the situation might worsen and all hopes for peace would fade away, Maghreb Arabe Presse reported Saturday.  


The King, who chairs the Al Quds (Jerusalem) Committee, stressed the importance he granted to the protection of Islamic and Christian holy shrines in Palestine, as well as the liberation of the occupied Palestinian territories. (
