The Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, has said that he fears for Jerusalem and its people following President Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump is expected to announce Wednesday the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Pope has described Jerusalem as "a unique city, sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims".

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas said it would mark the end of years of peace efforts and have "dangerous consequences" for the "security and stability of the region and of the world".

We ask from you, Mr President, to help us all walk towards more love and a definitive peace, which can not be reached without Jerusalem being for all.

The conversation was "part of a series of contacts made by the president of the Palestinian National Authority after his conversation with Donald Trump during which - according to Abbas' spokesman - the US president announced his intention to move the American embassy", Greg Burke, Vatican spokesman, told Vatican Radio.

Within minutes of Mr. Trump's speech, in which he said the American Embassy would be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Mr. Guterres delivered what amounted to a diplomatic rebuke.

"At the end of his weekly general audience, attended by thousands of people, the Pope called for the status quo on Jerusalem to be preserved, saying that he was very anxious because the American decision could "[add] new elements of tension to a global panorama" that is already marred "by so many and cruel conflicts". "And at the same time, I wish to make a heartfelt appeal to ensure that everyone is committed to respecting the status quo of the city, in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations".

In his remarks, Pope Francis said the Holy Land was the "land par excellence of dialogue between God and mankind".

Francis made the appeal during his weekly audience, after speaking with the Palestinian leader and soon after meeting with a delegation of Palestinian religious and intellectual representatives in a previously scheduled audience.

He spoke of having open communication and holding talks between differing religions "and also in civil society".

However, a key condition for dialogue is mutual respect and a commitment to strengthen that respect "for the sake of recognizing the rights of all people, wherever they happen to be", he said.
