 LEADERS OF 57 MUSLIM NATIONS URGE WORLD TO RECOGNISE EAST JERUSALEM AS PALESTINE’S OCCUPIED CAPITAL

 

The leaders of 57 Muslim nations have called on the world to recognise the State of Palestine and East Jerusalem as its occupied capital.

 

An Organisation of Islamic Co-operation communique declares US President DONALD TRUMP’s decision to recognise the city as Israel’s capital as “null and void”.

 

It also said the move has signalled Washington’s withdrawal from its role in the Middle East peace process.

 

Palestinian President MAHMOUD ABBAS earlier said the UN should take over the mediation role.
