Palestine's envoy attends protest on Jerusalem — Turkey

18 Diciembre 2017

The UN Security Council will vote Monday on a draft resolution that would reject US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, diplomats said.

The United States on December 6th recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announced that it will begin the process of moving its embassy there.

Addressing the rally in Turkey's northwestern Kocaeli province, he said: "There will be no peace in Jerusalem without the Palestinian state and there will be no Palestinian state possible without Jerusalem as its capital".

"I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,", US President Donald Trump said, marking a major shift in US policy that observers fear could inflame regional tensions.

The recognition has sparked pockets of protests and threats of unleashing terror on the World by terrorist group Hamas while many Islamic nations have called on the U.S.to rescind its decision.

The text also calls on all UN member states not to move their diplomatic missions to Jerusalem.

As it stood by Sunday night, the leaked text was a restatement of the UN's position on Jerusalem as outlined through decades of Security Council and General Assembly's resolutions, our correspondent noted.

If, as expected, the resolution doesn't pass at the Security Council, Erdogan, echoed by Palestinian leaders, said he would pursue a similar resolution in the United Nations General Assembly, where a simple majority would allow a non-binding resolution to pass. Even if a General Assembly resolution is non-binding, its potential passage would show overwhelming consensus in opposition to Trump.

Arab foreign ministers agreed to seek a UN Security Council resolution on the issue.

"We are starting initiatives at the UN to nullify America's decision on Jerusalem", Erdogan said.

Erbakan was Turkey's prime minister from June 1996 until Feb. 28, 1997, when the military effectively deposed him under a "post-modern coup" after less than a year in office, leading to the collapse of his coalition government.

"Turkish President Erdogan uses any excuse for open incitement against the Jewish state".

Back to July 1980, Israel passed a law that declared Jerusalem as the united capital of Israel, but the United Nations Security Council responded with a resolution condemning Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem and declared it a violation of international law.
