Pope, Morocco's king, say Jerusalem must be open to all faiths

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Pope Francis and Morocco's King Mohammed VI called on Saturday (March 30) for the protection of Jerusalem's multi-religious character, saying the city's sacred sites must be accessible to worshippers of all faiths.

In a joint appeal signed at Morocco's royal palace on the first day of Francis' visit to Rabat, the pope and the monarch said they were "deeply concerned for its spiritual significance and its special vocation as a city of peace".

Since U.S. President Donald Trump announced Washington's decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem in 2017, the pope, other Christian leaders and Muslim heads of state have stepped up their expressions of concern for the city.
