Condemning Israel’s decision to shift its capital from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is considered sacred by the Christians, Colombo’s Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said yesterday Jerusalem does not belong to one group of people.  

“The Catholic church is of the opinion that Jerusalem should not be a city which belongs to one group of people and therefore we cannot approve the recent developments with regard to this city,” he said.
