Iran's Pres. Rouhani due in Turkey to attend OIC summit

OIC summit host Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who sees himself as a champion of Palestinians has canvassed support from beyond the Muslim world including Russian President Vladimir Putin

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

The OIC expressed deep regret over the US President Donald Trump's announcement of the United States' recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his orders to move his country's embassy to the city, which constitutes a provocation of Muslims' sentiments.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will represent Pakistan at extra-ordinary summit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Al-Quds Al-Sharif being held in Istanbul on Wednesday (December 13).

Netanyahu nevertheless urged European Union leaders to follow in Trump's footsteps and move their embassies to Jerusalem, whereas the bloc's top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, made clear that no change would be forthcoming to the 28-member body's stance that the city's status must be determined through Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

"We will make a call for countries that have so far not recognized Palestine to do so now", he said. Saudi Arabia will be represented by its Islamic affairs minister.




Some 22 heads of state or government are expected to attend, including those from Iran, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Sudan, Somalia and Azerbaijan, as well as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan's King Abdullah II. "We want the United States to turn back from its mistake".

The president will deliver a speech at the emergency meeting on the holy city of al-Quds (Jerusalem), he added in his tweet.

"With the roadmap, we will create during the OIC meeting, we will show that (Trump's) decision will not be easy to implement", he said.

Trump officially declared Quds Israel's capital, despite warnings from around the world that the measure risks triggering a fresh wave of violence in the Middle East.
