TEHRAN, December 14 - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said that the entire Islamic World would stands by Palestinians.

Zarif: Islamic World would stands by PalestiniansTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The massive presence of leaders in the urgent meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) despite some considerable exceptions was very encouraging, he wrote in his official tweeter account.

The entire Islamic World is steadfast in solidarity with Palestinians, he wrote.

Zarif along with President Rouhani took part in the session held in Istanbul.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) invited all nations to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of Palestine, blasting the United States for disregarding Middle East peace by moving its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city.

The 57-member organization issued a communique at the end of an emergency summit on Wednesday, declaring that it would recognize "East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine and invite all countries to recognize the State of Palestine and East Jerusalem as its occupied capital."

The declaration was a direct response to US President Donald Trump days after he referred to the city as the "eternal capital" of Israel, according to Presstv.

The OIC rejected and condemned "in the strongest terms the unilateral decision by the president of the United States of America in recognizing Jerusalem al-Quds as the so-called capital of Israel, the occupying power."
