Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Sunday that Turkey would continue raising its voice for Palestine and other oppressed nations at international forums.
(AhlulBayt News Agency) - During a rally in Turkey's eastern Adiyaman province, Yildirim recalled the UN General Assembly's resolution that rejected the U.S. move to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's capital.
"Turkey will continue backing Palestine and oppressed nations. We will continue working for world peace," he said.
The UN's 193-member General Assembly on Thursday adopted a resolution on Jerusalem al-Quds with an overwhelming majority, calling on the U.S. to withdraw its recognition of the city as Israel's capital.
U.S. President Donald Trump's Dec.6 decision drew angry demonstrations across the Muslim world.
