OIC to hold emergency meeting on Palestine in Istanbul

OIC to hold emergency meeting on Palestine in Istanbul

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.

The meeting will take place on May 18, government spokesman and Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag announced.

Protest actions are underway in the Gaza Strip amid the 70th anniversary of establishment of Israel and the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"The Islamic world should move as one, with one voice, against this massacre", he added. Over the course of the conference, both Pakistan and Turkey will try to urge the Islamic states to strongly condemn this tragedy and craft a strategy to find a peaceful way of resolving the Israel-Palestine conflict.

During the telephonic conversation, Mr. Abbasi thanked Turkey for its timely initiative on the situation in Palestine.

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

Indeed, the OIC is fully prepared to impose such actions: "The OIC decides to pursue all available legal, political, and legislative avenues at the national and worldwide levels to confront and stop the Israeli colonial settlement regime in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem and adopt actions to ensure that companies and other actors that choose to benefit from the Israeli colonial regime are deprived of the opportunity of accessing OIC markets".

The Organization for Islamic Cooperation is the second largest intergovernmental platform in the world, following the United Nations, and has 57 member states in four continents.
