Iran refuses to recognize Israeli regime at OIC summit

Summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on last week's US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital

The Prime Minister said Malaysia condemns and totally rejects the unilateral decision by the United States of America to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Together with the OIC and the Islamic world, the prime minister said, Pakistan had always demonstrated its solidarity with the Palestinian people and their legitimate aspirations.

The prime minister and his delegation, upon arrival at Istanbul International Airport, were received by senior officials of Turkish government, Ambassador of Pakistan to Turkey Syrus Sajjad Qazi while senior embassy officials were also present.

The prime minister said that Pakistan's parliament echoed with pro-Palestine sentiments as well, and "we all stand firmly with the Palestinians and their just struggle".

He asked the participants that if UN Security Council is unable to act, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) should call for UN General Assembly emergency session.

Such a step would constitute a clear violation of global law and UN Security Council resolutions particularly UNSCR 478 of 1980.

He said the issue of Al-Quds Al-Sharif is at the heart of the Palestinian cause and the decision by the U.S. is a provocation and has serious consequences on the security of the region.

Ullah lived with his father, mother and brother in a Brooklyn neighborhood with a large Bangladeshi community, residents said . They suffered injuries consistent with being at the scene of an explosion, like ringing ears and headaches, officials said.

"We need to overcome our differences in the face of US-Israel coalition to deprive the Palestinians of their due rights", the premier said, adding that Muslim countries needed a concerted programme and common collaborative action, building on their strength.

Bahram Ghasemi, Spokesman of the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, made the remarks in response to reporters' questions on documents approved the Wednesday extraordinary summit of Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, Turkey which discussed the repercussions of the recognition by the United States of Al-Quds as a capital of Israeli regime.

"We do not accept any role of the United States in the political process from now on". The decision was classic Trump, somewhere between fearless and oblivious.

Najib said any attempt to recognise Jerusalem or any changes to the pre-1967 borders, is an infringement of the Palestinian people's rights and their right to self-determination and it is also a serious breach of worldwide laws and the relevant United Nation Security Council's resolutions, including the recent Resolution 2334 (2016).

(Web Desk) - Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Turkish President Erdogan and expressed complete support of Pakistan to the Muslim world in Jerusalem row.
