OIC condemns any decision to recognize Quds as Israel's capital

Tehran, June 1, IRNA -- The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said it condemns any position adopted by an international body that supports prolonging occupation of the Palestinian territories, including a US decision to recognize Quds as Israel’s capital.

The OIC summit in Mecca said in its final statement on Saturday that it opposes all illegal Israeli measures aimed at changing facts in occupied Palestinian territories, including Quds, Reuters reported.

It urged member countries to take “appropriate measures” against countries that move their embassies to Quds.

The OIC also refused to accept any proposal for peaceful settlement that did not correspond with Palestinians’ legitimate inalienable rights, the final statement said.

The OIC stressed the importance of amassing support for the budget of the Palestinian government to continue its work.

Meanwhile, summit’s final statement said that it noted with concern growing Islamophobia in many parts of the world.

OIC said Islamophobia “as a contemporary form of racism and religious discrimination continues to grow in many parts of the world, as evident by the increase in incidents of religious intolerance, negative stereotyping, and hatred and violence against Muslims”.

OIC also condemned a “terrorist attack” on Saudi Arabia’s oil pumping stations which targeted global oil supplies, according to final statement.

The summit also condemned “sabotage operations” against four vessels near the territorial waters of the United Arab Emirates, which it said threatened international maritime traffic safety, the statement added.
