OIC summit declares East Jerusalem as Palestine's capital




(MENAFN - AzerNews) By

East Jerusalem has been declared the capital of Palestine in a resolution adopted following the emergency summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, the Turkish media report on December 13.

The OIC also urged all countries to condemn the US decision to recognize 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.
