Turkey, UAE denounce Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

Leaders of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates have condemned US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday vowed to use all means to fight against the US recognition and described Israel as a terrorist state. Erdogan, as the current chairman of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), called for an emergency meeting on Wednesday in response to Trump's move.

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahayan said Trump's unilateral decision violates UN resolutions and urged Washington to reconsider its move and work in a more neutral manner to draft principles for a peace that serves all.
