Ankara seeking to annul Trump decision on Jerusalem at UN

Pakistani delegation meets Turkish leadership

When commenting on Erdogan's statement, in which he called Israel a terrorist state and suggested that East Jerusalem should be declared the capital of Palestine, Peskov said that "we know what the position of the Turkish president is".

"First we will seek the annulment of the decision at the UN Security Council, and if that fails with a veto, the next step will be to apply to the UN General Assembly", Erdogan said in his video address to a rally over Jerusalem in central Anatolian city of Konya.

Turkey had on Tuesday hosted a summit of Islamic nations which recognised East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state and featured fierce rhetoric where Erdogan called Israel a "terror state" that "feeds on blood" and kills children.

Turkish President Recep TayyipErdogan on Wednesday urged the Islamic world to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine, while Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas refused any US involvement in the peace process. He added that his administration would begin a process of moving the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, however, has defended the decision.

"With this recognition of [occupied] Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it [the United States] has become a partner to this bloodshed".

"Some countries in our region are in cooperation with the United States and the Zionist regime and determining the fate of Palestine", seethed Rouhani, whose country does not recognize Israel and has dire relations with Saudi Arabia.

A day after the summit, Turkey unveiled its intention to open its embassy in East Jerusalem.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and war crimes, was also in attendance and warmly greeted by Erdogan.
