Paris - July 19, 2017


Are you asking the Israeli authorities to retract the new security measures on the Esplanade of the Mosques, including metal detectors, and the closing of prayer spaces?

France is concerned at the heightening tensions in Jerusalem, especially around the Esplanade of the Mosques, where the situation has deteriorated over the last few days.

In this context, France calls on all parties to refrain from any act or statement that could exacerbate tensions and to work toward easing the situation. France reaffirms that any attempt at calling the status quo into question could threaten to destabilize the situation.
