Mirwaiz denounces Trump’s move to declare Jerusalem as Israel's capital


Srinagar: Soon after US President Donald Trump decalred Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq denounced the move and urged Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC) to take strong note of this move.

Mirwaiz tweeted, “ People of #Kashmir strongly denounces the the US Presidents move to announce #AlQudsAlSharief (Jerusalem) as the so-called capital of Israel,we urge the UN to take action in accordance with UN charter.OIC should take strong note and act unitedly against this anti-Muslim move”.


Despite urgent appeals from Arab and European leaders and the risk of anti-American protests and violence, Trump declared that he was ending an approach that for decades has failed to advance the prospects for peace.

He also for the first time personally endorsed the concept of a 'two-state solution' for Israel and the Palestinians, provided both sides agree to it.
