Israel slams Erdoğan's remarks on severing ties over Jerusalem

Israel slams Erdoğan's remarks on severing ties over Jerusalem

We once again want to warn the United States against this step, "Erdogan said".

Erdogan also warned that if the US does so, Turkey could cut off diplomatic ties with Israel.

Such a decision, which U.S. officials have said has not been finalised, would violate decades of USA policy not to take a stance on the fate of Jerusalem, on the grounds it was an issue Israeli sand Palestinians should negotiate and decide.

Trump will announce Wednesday his decision on whether the US will recognize the contested city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, according to the White House.

Erdogan also said Jerusalem is inviolable for Muslims, and ignoring that would have serious consequences.

Earlier, Erdogan said that any change to the status of Jerusalem is a "red line" for Muslims and could lead to his country cutting ties with Israel.

The status of Jerusalem is one of the most contentious issues of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

On Twitter Kalin said: "We are extremely concerned about reports that the United States is preparing to declare Jerusalem as capital of Israel". "Erdogan, you have enough troubles in Turkey - worry about your own issues and don't threaten us".

"We are imploring the USA once again".

It could spark demonstrations or violence by Palestinians or Muslims around the world, in part because of the sensitivity of the Jerusalem site known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif.

In a move widely perceived in Jerusalem as an effort by Erdogan to be seen as a leader in the Muslim world, he said at a meeting of his AKP Party that Jerusalem was a "redline" for Muslims.

On Monday, the Trump administration announced that a decision had yet to be reached on whether or not to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Also, Trump missed a deadline on Monday to sign a waiver which would postpone moving the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a campaign pledge he has delayed fulfilling. Trump is also scheduled to call Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and King Abdullah of Jordan.
