ANKARA (AA) - An open-ended extraordinary meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation executive committee will be held on Wednesday in Jeddah, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
The meeting will be held at the level of foreign ministers, upon the call made by the State of Palestine to discuss Israel’s violations in the occupied city of East Jerusalem (Al-Quds).
Turkey, a member state of the OIC Executive Committee, will be represented by Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Turkish minister of foreign affairs.
"The occupied city of East Jerusalem (Al-Quds), the capital of the State of Palestine, is part of the Palestinian territory occupied in 1967 and is not under the jurisdiction of the Israeli judiciary power," the OIC had said in May after an Israeli court’s decision to extend the closure of Bab al-Rahma mosque.
