(MENAFN - AzerNews) By
Palestine will annul all agreements with Israel, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said.
Abbas made the remarks in Istanbul December 13 at the opening ceremony of the extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on the issue of Jerusalem.
Abbas added that this decision is made in protest against the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Previously, US President Donald Trump proclaimed that the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Israel proclaimed Jerusalem its capital after the end of the War of Independence in 1949. In 1967, after the Six Days War, it seized East Jerusalem and united it with the West Jerusalem, but the UN did not recognize this.
Embassies of countries that have diplomatic relations with Israel are located mainly in Tel Aviv, Herzliya and Ramat Gan.
