The Foreign Office called upon the United States to 'refrain from any move that alters the legal and historical status as well as the character of Al-Quds Al-Sharif, fully comply with all applicable UN Security Council resolutions including UNSCR 478'.

Trump recognized the holy city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital Wednesday, prompting a universal diplomatic backlash amid fears of widespread tension in the Middle East.

Such a step would constitute a clear violation of worldwide law and UN Security Council resolutions particularly UNSCR 478 of 1980, it said. This includes any attempted annexation of East Jerusalem as a violation of worldwide law. "It's unilateral and an unfortunate decision which undermines the peace process".

Pakistan renews its call for the establishment of a viable, independent and contiguous Palestinian State, on the basis of internationally agreed parameters: the pre-1967 borders and Al-Quds Al-Sharif (Jerusalem) as capital, the note says.

Pakistan calls upon the United States to refrain from any move that alters the legal and historical status as well as character of Jerusalem, fully comply with all applicable UN Security Council resolutions including UNSCR 478, it said.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit on Jerusalem will bring concrete results regarding U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of the city as Israeli capital, senior adviser to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Gülnur Aybet said Thursday.

He warned that any violation of the recognized legal and historical status of the holy city, important to Jews, Muslims and Christians is likely to exacerbate religious and sectarian conflicts, while undermining global efforts to create conditions conducive to the resumption of peace talks and jeopardize the chances for peace.
