Abdullah at UN: Jordan will protect Jerusalem's Muslim, Christian identity

Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Jordan's King Abdullah II appealed to the world body to support a comprehensive solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
"Every UN resolution recognizes the equal rights of the Palestinian people through a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines," Abdullah said. "Arab and Muslim countries committed to a comprehensive peace, the Arab Peace Initiative, that was first put forward 16 years ago."
"We need to safeguard the heritage of Jerusalem," Abdullah added. "We will counter any attempts to change the city's Muslim and Christian identity."
