OIC Summit to focus on Palestinian oppression, Presidential Spox Kalın says


The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit to be held in Istanbul Friday will focus on the steps that need to be taken to end oppression in Palestine, Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalın said Thursday.

The OIC had previously declared East Jerusalem the capital of Palestine “under occupation” and urged the U.S. to withdraw from the peace process and back down from its Jerusalem decision.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan recently said that Turkey will propose to establish a joint effort by the OIC and the European Union to settle the issue over Jerusalem’s status.
