The OIC leaders will also explore ways to deal with the situation.

The Extra-ordinary Summit has been called by the President of Turkey in his capacity as the Chair of OIC.

The Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold an extraordinary Summit in Istanbul on Wednesday to discuss the repercussions of the recognition by the United States of Al-Quds as a capital of Israel. Saudi Arabia will be represented by Islamic Affairs Minister Salih bin Abdulaziz al-Shaikh. The participation of the member states is expected at the state head level, but given the regional sensitives between them, it is unlikely that all members will participate at the highest level.

The same strong reaction came from him even before President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital describing the status of the city, whose eastern sector Palestinians see as the capital of their future state, as a red line for Muslims.

Officials at the foreign ministry told The Nation that Pakistan would stand with the other Muslim-majority countries to counter the US-Israel nexus.

Israel took over East Jerusalem in the 1967 war and declared the whole city as its eternal capital in 1980, a move never recognized by the worldwide community.
