Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende slammed Tel Aviv’s plans to expand illegal settlement in Occupied Eastern Jerusalem.

Norway’s senior diplomat expressed concerns over the latest tension rocking Occupied Jerusalem, dubbing the current state of affairs in the region as “extremely critical” due to the recent clashes and police violence around al-Aqsa, PIC reported.

He further laid emphasis on the inherently sacred character of occupied Jerusalem, calling for urgently rehabilitating its sanctity and denouncing all potential attempts at wiping out its historical idiosyncrasy.

Norway’s Brende further slammed Israel’s settlement tenders aimed at engulfing East Jerusalem and smudging its typically Islamic essence, dubbing the move a barefaced infringement of all international laws.
