Erdoğan meets Palestine's Abbas with Jerusalem high on agenda

Erdoğan meets Palestine's Abbas with Jerusalem high on agenda”

"The Extraordinary Summit has been called by the President of Turkey in his capacity as the Chair of the OIC Summit".

The same strong reaction came from him even before President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital describing the status of the city, whose eastern sector Palestinians see as the capital of their future state, as a red line for Muslims.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has arrived in Turkey to attend the extraordinary summit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Al-Quds (Jerusalem) being held on Wednesday.

"We are waiting for the OIC to take a decision that matches the anger of the nations", Haniyeh said, pointing out that the expected decision is "to reject the United States recognition". "We want them [Arab and Islamic countries] to help the Palestinians in Jerusalem by demanding that the USA keep its mission in Tel Aviv".

The president is expected to reach Istanbul early Tuesday while he is set to return home next day, he added. He further expressed hope that "the summit will lead to a clear plan of action, forcing the US administration to abandon its position and abide by resolutions...which consider east Jerusalem as an integral part of the Palestinian territories occupied [by Israel] in 1967". Under worldwide law, the area is considered to be occupied territory.

Malaysia's participation at the summit reflects the country's commitment and unwavering support for the Palestinians in their pursuit to attain their legitimate and inalienable rights for an independent State of Palestine based on pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

"He (Trump) wanted to show he is helpful to the Zionists and the Israelis".
