Turkish president says Jerusalem issue needs more than just talk

Erdogan calls for concrete steps on Jerusalem (Qudus)

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged serious attempts that would produce results to solve the Jerusalem question after the illegal U.S. move recognizing the holy city as Israel's 'undivided' capital.

"On the Jerusalem issue, we must take concrete, tangible, visible and result-oriented steps," Erdogan told an International Migrants Day event in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Dec. 6 recognized Jerusalem (Qudus) as Israel’s capital, drawing angry reactions from across the Arab and Muslim world. 

At an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), held last week in Istanbul, participants responded to the U.S. move by formally recognizing East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. 

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine dispute, with Palestinians hoping East Jerusalem -- now occupied by Israel -- might eventually serve as the capital of a sovereign Palestinian state.
