UNB, Dhaka :
The US administration "unlawfully" opened its embassy in Jerusalem, says the OIC on Monday terming it a "clear violation" of international law and legitimacy and in clear contempt of international community's position regarding Jerusalem.
"The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly rejects and condemns in the strongest terms this illegal decision by the US administration," said the OIC in a statement. The OIC said it considers this action as an attack on the historical, legal,
 natural and national rights of the Palestinian people, which undermines the standing of the United Nations and rule of international law and thus represents an affront to international peace and security; as expressed at the Extraordinary OIC Islamic Summit held in Istanbul on December 13, 2017, and also by the international community at the UN General Assembly held on December21, 2017. As Chair of the 45th Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of OIC, Bangladesh issued the joint statement of the OIC (45th CFM). The OIC viewed such deplorable action by the US administration as a clear violation of all existing international laws pertaining to the status of Al Quds Al Sharif and Palestine, in particular the United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 (1967), 252 (1968), 267 (1969), 298 (1971), 338 (1973), 446 (1979), 465 (1980, 476 (1980) 478 (1980), 2334 (2016), United Nations General Assembly resolution A/RES/72/15 (2017).
The OIC determines that the US administration has contradicted its own commitments and expressed utter disdain and disrespect to Palestinian legitimate rights, and international law and has made very clear that it has no regard for the rights and religious sentiments of the Muslim Ummah and concludes that the current US administration has invalidated its role as a broker in any future peace efforts in Palestine.
The specific status of Al Quds Al Sharif is central to the OIC and to the Muslim Ummah and of other religions, which therefore requires the protection and preservation of its unique spiritual, religious and cultural dimensions, as foreseen in relevant UN resolutions. The final status of Al Quds Al Sharif should and must be resolved through negotiations in line with relevant UN resolutions. The OIC determines that it will continue its efforts to defend the two-state solution and the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and statehood by creating positive and irreversible political and legal realities, and lead efforts to formulate a multilateral and credible approach to end the conflict on the basis of international law and relevant United Nations resolutions.
The OIC decided to pursue all available legal, political, and legislatives avenues at the national and international levels to confront and stop the Israeli colonial settlement regime in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem and adopt actions to ensure that companies and other actors that choose to benefit from the Israeli colonial regime are deprived of the opportunity of accessing OIC markets.
