Bahrain participates in OIC ministerial meeting
President Abdul Hamid left Dhaka for Istanbul to join Organization of Islamic Cooperation's (OIC) special summit convened on December 13 over the unilateral U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital sparking protests across the Muslim world.
According to the official, Erdogan is following a pattern of behavior he used in 2010 following the MV Mavi Marmara protest ship incident, in which he rode his confrontational approach to Israel to a position of great popularity in the Arab and Muslim world.
The Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Member States will hold an extraordinary meeting on the same morning to discuss the move in a unified and coordinated manner in the face of these developments affecting the occupied city of Al-Quds and its historical, legal and political status, the OIC said in a statement.
The special summit has been called by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in his capacity as the chair of the OIC summit.
Erdogan has accused the United States of ignoring Palestinian claims to east Jerusalem and "trampling on worldwide law".
"We will make a call for countries that have so far not recognized Palestine to do so now", he said. With only one day to go, Cavusoglu admitted several of the 57 OIC nations have not indicated who they will send, prominently including Saudi Arabia.
US President Donald Trump's decision to relocate the capital city of the Israeli regime from Tel Aviv to Jeruslam al-Quds has received united criticism from many countries. Indeed Erdogan has come in the fore as a champion of the Palestinian cause and spearheaded the Muslim reaction to the United States decision by convening the OIC meeting in Istanbul to formulate a joint plan of action.
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.
