General Assembly President Ali Treki expressed profound concern today at what he called the desecration of the ancient Muslim cemetery of Mamilla in Jerusalem.

In a note released by his spokesperson, Dr. Treki said he was "alarmed by the intent of erecting secular projects on the site of this holy sanctuary, which is the burial place of venerated religious figures for more than 14 centuries."

The note added that the General Assembly President "believes that this would constitute a sacrilegious and provocative act against the spirit of peace as well as dialogue among civilizations and religions."
