JEDDAH: A delegation from the executive committee of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) held talks in Brussels with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israels capital and move its embassy there from Tel Aviv.
OIC Secretary-General Yousef Al-Othaimeen said the talks come within the framework of mobilizing global support for efforts to launch a political process to end Israels occupation, based on UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
He urged countries that do not recognize the state of Palestine to do so with East Jerusalem as its capital, and to support Palestines accession to international organizations. AN Jeddah
He also highlighted the need to ensure international protection for the Palestinian people.
The OICs executive committee includes Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, Gambia, Uzbekistan, Ivory Coast, Bangladesh, and the organizations secretary-general. AN Jeddah
