Gaza killings: Turkey invites Pakistan to extraordinary OIC summit”

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildrim on Tuesday invited Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to participate in an extraordinary session of the OIC convened by Turkey on May 18 to discuss the fresh spate of violence and massacre of innocent Palestinians at the hands of Israeli forces.

Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali and Prime Minister's Security Affairs Adviser Maj Gen (retd) Tarique Ahmed Siddique will join the summit, a senior official at the Foreign Ministry told UNB on Wednesday.

The US administration "unlawfully" opened its embassy in Jerusalem, said the OIC on Monday terming it a "clear violation" of global law and legitimacy and in clear contempt of worldwide community's position regarding Jerusalem.

Turkey has called for an emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the Turkish government spokesman Bekir Bozdag said.

East Jerusalem is considered occupied Palestinian territory under global law.

Bangladesh stressed preserving the legal status of Jerusalem as an worldwide city within the framework of relevant United Nations resolutions.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described the actions of the Israeli forces as a "genocide" and Israel as a "terrorist state".

The summit declared East Jerusalem - which the worldwide community regards as annexed by Israel - "as the capital of the State of Palestine" and urged the world to follow suit.

On Monday, May 14, the OIC- 45th Council of Foreign Ministers issued a statement at the initiative of Chairs of the Islamic Summit, Turkey, and the Council of Foreign Ministers, Bangladesh On the Deplorable Action of the U.S. To Open its Embassy in Jerusalem. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas announced a three-day mourning.
