Safadi’s comments came in a speech at a festivity organized at the Professional Associations complex Saturday. The activity was entitled “Supporting Al-Aqsa and Jerusalem Sanctuaries” on the 74th anniversary of the  Nakba.

Referring to the Palestinian people’s steadfastness and sacrifices, he declared that Jerusalem is the “eternal capital of Palestine”.

The 74th anniversary of the Nakba documents the biggest crime that humanity has witnessed, including displacement, killing civilians, and land confiscation until the present day, he pointed out.

Jordan, under its Hashemite leadership, will continue defending and supporting the Palestinian people until they achieve their legitimate rights on their land by establishing their independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, Safdai insisted.

For his part, Secretary General of the Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs, Abdullah Kanaan, said Jerusalem is “our compass and our first story. The holy city will remain the Palestinian Arab Islamic capital.”

On the sidelines of the event, Safadi inaugurated a Jerusalem exhibition, under the theme: “Eternal capital of Palestine,” and the father of Jordanian prisoner, Osaid Abu Khdeir, was honored.
