President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas emphasised that Jerusalem is and will be the capital of Palestine, during the summit of the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul on Wednesday. Reacting to the United States' decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, Abbas said that «with this step, the United Sate of America will have chosen to lose its competency as a mediator and to disqualify itself from playing a role in the peace process.» The Palestinian leader also emphasised that Trump's move proves the US' «bias» towards Israel. Leaders and foreign ministers of the OIC gathered for an extraordinary summit on Wednesday to discuss the repercussions of the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
