Srinagar, Dec 08: Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Liberation Party (DLP) Chairman Hashim Qureshi condemned the decision of US President Donald Trump, to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to shift the US Embassy there from Tel Aviv.
According to the statement issued to KNS, Qureshi said that this action goes against the United Nations’ and the international community’s stand that East Jerusalem is an occupied territory by Israel since 1967. An independent Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital is the internationally accepted position.
The United States has taken the formal step of legalizing the illegal occupation of Palestine territories by Israel. No other country in the world has given recognition to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
He said that United States is also responsible for scuttling any possible peace negotiations between the Israel and Palestine. This decision by Donald Trump will trigger further tensions and conflicts in the region with global ramifications.
Hashim Qureshi also blame to disunity of Muslim countries who are not standing together for problems of Muslim world? He further said that these are the Muslim World who are buying Arms and ammunition from the USA and making their economy strong.
Hashim Qureshi suggests that Democratic world must think about international role of USA and condemned this move.
Hashim Qureshi also did appeal to the Muslim World that they stand up against USA in illegal decision. (KNS)
