Turkish Prime Minister Yıldırım says Trump's plans for Jerusalem 'illegal'
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, who is in South Korea, said US President Donald Trump's decision on Jerusalem would be illegal.
Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, who traveled to South Korea for some contacts, made important statements at the press conference he held there.
Referring to the statement that US President Donald Trump is planning to do about Jerusalem today, Yıldırım said that this decision should be given up.
"It will be an unlawful decision"
U.S. President Donald Trump is due to formally recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital later Wednesday and begin preparations to move the embassy from Tel Aviv, three senior U.S. officials confirmed late Tuesday.
“One way or another, both situations will be unlawful decisions and will make the existing problems in the region even more intractable. The U.S. president to not make a statement in this direction is vital for the future of the region and global peace. Jerusalem is a very delicate subject in the Islamic world. Our biggest expectation and hope on this matter is that no steps are taken. Impositions, wrong steps in this direction would bring irreversible consequences,” said Yıldırım. (ILKHA)
