Erdogan urges for 'common stance' for Palestine

Turkey on Tuesday urged Islamic countries to review their ties with Israel and said it would call an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) after the illegal state forces massacred dozens of Palestinians during protests in Gaza on Monday.

The US administration "unlawfully" opened its embassy in Jerusalem, said the OIC on Monday terming it a "clear violation" of global law and legitimacy and in clear contempt of worldwide community's position regarding Jerusalem.

He added that all members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) were invited.

Erdoğan said the worldwide community should speak out for Palestinians' suffering and called for a firm and common stance by the OIC.

Bangladesh stressed preserving the legal status of Jerusalem as an global city within the framework of relevant United Nations resolutions.
