Erdogan Calls Islamic Summit Next Week on Al-Quds
Local Editor

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is calling a summit of the main pan-Islamic body in Istanbul on Dec. 13, to discuss the expected US move to recognize occupied al-Quds as ‘Israel's' so-called capital, his spokesman said Wednesday.

"In the face of developments that arouse sensitivity over the status of al-Quds, President is calling a leaders' summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation [OIC] in order to display joint action among Islamic countries," presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin told reporters in Ankara.

He said the summit meeting would take place on Dec. 13. There was no immediate confirmation from Muslim leaders if they would come.

Turkey currently holds the chairmanship of the OIC.

The recognition of al-Quds as ‘Israel's' so-called capital and the moving of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied al-Quds - expected to be announced by US President Donald Trump later Wednesday - would be a "grave mistake" against international agreements, Kalin warned.

For his part, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters in Brussels ahead of meeting US counterpart Rex Tillerson that the move is a "mistake" that "will not bring stability and peace but rather chaos and instability."

Asked whether he would bring the issue up with Tillerson, the minister said: "I have already told him and I will tell him again."

Erdogan warned Tuesday that the status of al-Quds is a "red line" for Muslims and could even prompt Turkey to cut ties with ‘Israel.'
