Pak opposes USA plan to shift embassy to Jerusalem

The decision would alter the legal and historical status of the city, it added.

The OIC regards the decision as a transgression for the political and historical sites of the religious city and clear violation of global laws. It signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process as well, the statement said.

Pakistan urged the United Sates to revisit its decision as soon as possible in order to avoid the potentially grave repercussions in the region and beyond.

The members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will convene tomorrow to discuss the situation in the occupied Jerusalem, the Voice of Palestine reported, quoting the OIC's envoy for the State of Palestine, Maher Karaki.

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Khawaja, in a tweet, said: "By moving the embassy USA will practically alter the status of Jerusalem.An affront to [Palestinians] and the Muslim world... practically burying the [two-state] solution..."

The people and government of Pakistan are unequivocally opposed the controversial plan of shifting the US Embassy.

"As the women of the Muslim world, we condemn the statement made by U.S. President Donald Trump regarding the recognition of Al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the capital of Israel", the council said in a statement.

"We would like to take this opportunity to recall the acknowledgement by the United Nations that the Palestinian Question can only be resolved on the basis of the 1967 borders and through the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State whose capital would be East Jerusalem".

He warned that any violation of the recognized legal and historical status of the holy city, important to Jews, Muslims and Christians is likely to exacerbate religious and sectarian conflicts, while undermining worldwide efforts to create conditions conducive to the resumption of peace talks and jeopardize the chances for peace.
