UN: The visit of the Pope to Morocco is “of great symbolism”

The Call of Al Quds, signed by King Mohammed VI and Pope Francis on the occasion of the visit of the Supreme Pontiff to Morocco, is in line with the position of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the status of the Holy City, said Monday, his spokesman in New York.

The content of the Al Quds Appeal “is in line with what the Secretary-General has repeatedly reiterated, namely, that Jerusalem is sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims, and that this character should be preserved, “said Stéphane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN chief, during his daily briefing at the United Nations.

Regarding the importance and symbolism of the Pope’s visit to the Kingdom, a land of tolerance and coexistence of religions, the spokesman stressed that this visit is “extremely important and of great symbolic”, adding that any initiative capable of contributing to “more understanding and tolerance between religions is welcome”.

Referring to the Sovereign Pontiff’s plea for migrants, Guterres’ spokesman said that “the issue of migrants, their protection and respect for their dignity is something that is dear to the heart of the Secretary-General of the United Nations”.
