Pak PM to attend OIC Summit on in Turkey

US Quds Plan Fans Regional Flames: Iran's President

The conference will be preceded by the Council of Foreign Ministers Meeting which will be attended by Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif, the foreign office said.

The leaders of 57 Muslim-majority countries will meet on December 13 in Istanbul at the summit initiated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the rotating term president of the OIC.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced last Wednesday that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and ordered to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to the disputed holy city. The participation of the member states is expected at the state head level, but given the regional sensitives between them, it is unlikely that all members will participate at the highest level.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is leading the Malaysian delegation to the extraordinary OIC summit in Istanbul.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will depart today for Turkey to represent Pakistan at a summit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Jerusalem being held in Istanbul on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Adnan al-Husayni, the Jerusalem governor of the Palestinian Authority, has suggested that the OIC should declare Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Palestine in response to Trump's action.

At the end of the 1948 war the armistice line divided Jerusalem in two: The Israel-controlled Western part, and the Jordan-controlled eastern part, which included the old walled city containing important Jewish, Muslim and Christian religious sites.

The governor had vowed that the intifada would continue until positive steps are taken.
