OIC Should Declare Jerusalem As Capital City Of Palestine

Recep Tayyip Erdogan gestures as he delivers a speech at an event in Ankara Turkey Tuesday Dec. 12 2017. Leaders and high-ranking officials of Muslim countries will meet Wednesday Dec. 13 in Istanbul for an extraordin

The OIC leaders will also explore ways to deal with the situation, the FO added.

The OIC has officially agreed on the United Nations' two-state solution as the only viable way to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif and Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif are also accompanying the prime minister on the trip, said in a press release by the PM Office.

The Palestinian Authority is hoping the OIC will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of "Palestine" to counter President Trump's decision to recognize it as the capital of Israel.

President Rouhani is slated to leave Tehran for the Turkish city of Istanbul on Tuesday evening to take part in the OIC summit, Vice-President for Communication and Information Affairs Parviz Ismaili said on his Twitter account on Sunday.

Accompanied by his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman and senior government officials, the prime minister is scheduled to arrive tonight.

This will be followed by the adoption of the Istanbul Declaration.

The paper included the following as among the possible "initiatives": ending joint political military and economic projects with Israel; calling on all member states to cut their economic and political ties with Israel; calling for the OIC countries to withdraw their ambassadors from the U.S. for "consultations"; freezing or ending relations with countries that "accept Israel's occupation of Jerusalem"; declaring that the USA should no longer be considered an interlocutor in the Mideast peace process; closing airspace to Israeli aircraft; and ending intelligence cooperation with both the U.S. and Israel.

The governor had vowed that the intifada would continue until positive steps are taken.

"With the roadmap, we will create during the OIC meeting, we will show that (Trump's) decision will not be easy to implement", he said.
