ISESCO calls for decisive measures to confront Trump's decision

Tehran, Dec 7, IRNA – Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) Abdulaziz Altwaijri called on Thursday for decisive measures against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize al-Quds city as Israel's capital.

In a statement, Altwaijri announced that the US decision contradicts international resolutions, which consider al-Quds as a part of the Occupied Palestine as well as with justified peace plan for Palestine issue, which endanger regional peace and security.

Palestinians consider Eastern Quds as their own government's capital upon the UN Security Council's resolutions.

Altwaijri underlined that al-Quds is an Arabian city with Muslim and Christian sanctities located there.

He called on 54 members of the ISESCO to take decisive acts to confront consequences of the US decision.

ISESCO affiliated to Organization of Islamic Cooperation and was founded in 1979 and its headquarters is in Rabat, Morocco.

The Zionist regime occupied Eastern Quds in 1967 and annexed it to the Western Quds in 1980.

The Zionist regime considers Al-Quds as its own sole capital, but international community has refused to recognize it.

Arab, Islamic, western countries and international bodies have warned against recognition of Quds as Israel's capital and relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Quds, and said it may emerge popular uprising (Intifada) and may weaken peace in the region.
