The Crisis Summit of Islamic States counters Trump's Jerusalem decision. Trump declared the east of the city the capital of a Palestinian in Dec.

"We announce that we recognize the Palestinian state, whose capital is East Jerusalem," the Turkish state news agency Anadolu quoted from the statement of the summit of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Wednesday in Istanbul. "We urge the world to recognize East Jerusalem as the occupied capital of a Palestinian state."

At the conclusion of the special summit, OIC members condemned the "unilateral, illegal and irresponsible" decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
