TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (Press Shia Agency) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged serious attempts that would produce results to solve the Al-Quds (Jerusalem) question after the illegal US move recognizing the holy city as Israeli regime’s ‘undivided’ capital.
“On the Jerusalem issue, we must take concrete, tangible, visible and result-oriented steps,” Erdogan told an International Migrants Day event in the Turkish capital, Ankara.
Erdogan said leaving Jerusalem to the mercy of an “invading power” like Israel can open the door of a process which will push humanity 1,000 years back.
“Today every child is reduced to tears, every suffering mother, every person who is hit, beaten or insulted in Jerusalem and Palestinian cities, is a telling sign of an approaching storm,” he said.
US President Donald Trump on Dec. 6 recognized Al-Quds as Israeli regime’s capital, drawing angry reactions from across the Arab and Muslim world.
At an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), held last week in Istanbul, participants responded to the US move by formally recognizing East Al-Quds as the capital of Palestine.
