The Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC) will organize an Extraordinary Meeting of the PUIC Standing Committee on Palestine in Tehran on Monday to address the recent developments in Palestine in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s decision to relocate Washington’s embassy in Tel Aviv to al-Quds.
Parliament speakers of Iran, Mali, and Iraq will attend the meeting and deliver speeches on the issue.
On December 6, Trump ordered the relocation of US embassy from to Jerusalem al-Quds, prompting negative reactions from almost all of Washington's allies, namely the European Union, the UK, Germany and France.
Iran has stressed that the move would escalate tension in the Middle East and further destabilize the region.
The extraordinary Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit
held Dec. 13 in Istanbul, a week after Trump’s announcement, declared al-Quds as the capital of Palestine, rejected the US stance as "dangerous" and called on the international community to follow in its footsteps.
