"Jerusalem constitutes a red line for us, and Israel must recognize Jerusalem's status among Arabs, Muslims and Christians, and not play with fire," King Abdullah of Jordan said in an interview to Egypt's Al-Hayat.

This follows the uproar in the wake of the Ramat Shlomo construction plans.

He was also quoted as saying the peace negotiations had to lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as its capital.
