Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has sharply criticised Israel at the opening of a summit of Islamic nations in Istanbul, calling it a “terror state.” 

Turkey is hosting the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Wednesday in the wake of the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as its capital — a move widely criticised across the world but hailed by Israel. The summit is expected to forge a unified position of Arab and Muslim countries. 

Erdogan said in his speech to the gathering that Jerusalem is a “red line” for Muslims who will not accept any aggression on its Islamic sanctuaries. He said East Jerusalem is the capital of a future Palestinian state and called on states that have not recognised a Palestinian state to do so. 

Erdogan says the “process to include Palestine in international agreements and institutions should be sped up.”
