Turkey President urges World leaders to recognize Jerusalem as Palestinian capital.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged leaders of Muslim nations to recognise Jerusalem as the "occupied capital of the Palestinian state". Addressing a summit of the Organization for Islamic Co-operation, he said the US decision to recognise the city as Israel's capital was "null and void". Mr Erdogan also again accused Israel of being a "state of terror". Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas said the US had "disqualified itself from playing a role in the peace process".
