Alwaght- Leader of Muslim states are holding an emergency summit this Friday in Turkey to discuss “the latest serious developments in the State of Palestine.”

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has convened an extraordinary summit in Istanbul on May 18 to show solidarity with the Palestinian nation and to denounce the relocation of the US embassy to Al Quds (Jerusalem), as well as the Israeli regime's massacre of over 60 Palestinian civilians who were taking part in peaceful protests on May 14.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as the rotating chairman of the 57-member body, will host leaders and senior officials from Muslim-majority countries, aiming to issue a strong statement that they will “never abandon al-Quds to the Israeli regime.”

The summit will focus on the stances and steps to be taken by Islamic countries to defend Palestine and al-Quds in cooperation and solidarity with the State of Palestine and its people,” İbrahim Kalın, chief foreign policy advisor of President Erdogan, said in a written statement on May 17.

The Israeli occupation and the Palestinian issue are not only issues that concern Muslim countries, but everyone who believes in justice and law. Steps to be taken to mobilize the international community for ending the ongoing cruelty in Palestine will be addressed at the summit,” Kalın added.

The OIC summit will begin with a morning session in which foreign ministers from the OIC will attend to discuss recent developments after the relocation of the US embassy to al-Quds as well as the actions to be taken by the Islamic world. The ministers will also draft a declaration to be revealed by the leaders of the OIC later on May 18.

Iran, Azerbaijan, Sudan, Pakistan, Qatar, Guinea, Kuwait and Indonesia are among the countries that have confirmed the highest level participation in the summit but it is expected that most of the OIC countries will be represented in the same way at the summit.
