We continue to encourage Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Jordan to do all they can to work to together to continue to uphold the status quo at the holy sites in Jerusalem. We are committed to working with all parties to maintain calm, avoid provocation and ensure the safety and the security of the Al Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount compound and all who worship there.
