PM to attend OIC extraordinary summit on Al-Quds Al-Sharif

Thousands protested on December 9 against Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Turkey is now the president of the 57-member organization that includes Muslim countries on four continents, and Erdogan is scheduled to address both the opening and closing sessions of Wednesday's summit, taking advantage of the gathering to cast himself in the role of the Muslim defender of Jerusalem.

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.

President Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday met with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan before the emergency summit of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) to discuss U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The premier is accompanied by Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and other officials.

The prime minister Abbasi will convey the sentiments of the people and the government of Pakistan of the unequivocal support to the people of Palestine.

Pro-Palestinian protesters demonstrate against Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Marches were staged in Pakistan, AJK, Iran, Indonesia, Malaysia, Afghanistan, India-held Kashmir, Jordan, Tunisia, Somalia, Yemen, and Indonesia.

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.

The prime minister will lead the Pakistani delegation in the session summoned to devise the future strategy in wake of the U.S. move regarding Jerusalem.

On Wednesday 6 December, immediately after Trump made public his decision on Jerusalem, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan who is also the head of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation called for an extraordinary meeting on 13 December to take a unified reaction to this development.

The announcement was a major shift by Washington that overturns decades of USA foreign policy.
