WAAR-DUHOK:

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has agreed to recognize East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine in an extraordinary summit held in Istanbul.

The OIC “declares East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine and invites all countries to recognize the State of Palestine and East Jerusalem as its occupied capital,” read a joint declaration after the summit.

The ruling, which was handed down on Dec.

13, counters U.S.

President Trump’s recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s “undivided” capital and favors the pre-1967 borders preferred by the two-state solution.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had called on the international community to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.

“I invite countries that claim international law and equity to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state under occupation,” Erdoğan said, speaking at the OIC summit in Istanbul on the same day.

“It is a must for countries that have not yet recognized the Palestinian state to take this important step, to maintain a balance that will ensure good sense and justice in the region,” he added.
