OIC rejects approval of Serbia and Kosovo to open embassies in occupied Jerusalem

Jeddah (UNA-OIC) – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed its rejection of the approval of the governments of Serbia and Kosovo to open their embassies in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

In a statement released Monday, the OIC also stressed that this illegal action constitutes a violation of international law and all UN relevant resolutions, especially Security Council Resolution 478.

The OIC General Secretariat called on the governments of Serbia and Kosovo to respect their legal and political obligations under international law and resolutions of international legitimacy. It also asked them to adopt positions that support the chances of achieving peace based on the vision of a two-state solution, and not to take any steps that would prejudice the historical, legal and political status of the occupied city of Jerusalem.
