Erdogan, Putin say US Al-Quds decision negatively impact region

In a telephone conversation on Thursday, the presidents of Russian Federation and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed serious concern in connection with the United States decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, TASS reports citing Kremlin press service.

"President Erdogan emphasized that the latest move by the US government would negatively impact the peace and stability in the region".

Noting that Israel's decision to annex Jerusalem in 1980 was rejected by the global community and the UN, Erdogan stressed that the recent step taken by the US administration would negatively affect peace and stability in the region, the sources said.

"However, we do not want to talk about the decisions that have not been announced yet" Peskov was quoted as saying. He also said that it could prompt the Turkish government to cut diplomatic ties with Israel.

The possible recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the United States will not contribute to efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli crisis, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told Russian reporters in New Delhi on Wednesday. It later extended sovereignty over the area in a move never recognized by the global community.

Jerusalem is the home of holy sites for Muslims, Christians and Jews alike, and Palestinians have long wanted to claim the city as the capital of a future state.

Ahead of his election a year ago, Trump repeatedly promised to relocate the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
