The Iraqi Foreign Ministry welcomes the UN General Assembly decision rejecting changes on Al-Quds, a victory for international legitimacy, the Palestinian cause and its supporters from the majority of the world's nations.

The determination of Iraq affirms its steadfast and principled attitude on Palestine and Al-Quds and its call on the world to face teh attempts to undermine the Holy City.

Iraq is also appreciate the attitudes of countries in support of the UN decision, the same attitude demanded by Iraq at the meeting of Arab foreign ministers and the extraordinary Islamic summit and the words of His Excellency Dr. Ibrahim Al- Jaafari, which expresses the attitude of the Iraqi government and people.

That Iraq's vote among 128 countries in favor of the decision, which came near international consensus has made the declaration of Al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist entity void and proved the legitimate right and legal for Palestine with its capital Al-Quds.
