Turkey Created a Roadmap to Increase the Number of Countries Recognizing Palestine


Turkey will gear up diplomatic efforts to increase the number of countries recognizing Palestine as a state and to strengthen its economy as part of a three-phase roadmap for its Jerusalem bid following a U.N. General Assembly vote that overwhelmingly voted against Washington’s recognition of the holy city as Israel’s capital, Hurriyet reports. 

According to Turkish officials, Turkey’s roadmap consists of the following steps: 

- Turkey will launch fresh diplomatic initiatives to increase the number of countries that recognize Palestine as a state and East Jerusalem as its capital. Currently, 137 countries recognize it as a state, and the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) declared East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine. 

- Efforts for the protection of the status of the Haram al-Sharif, one of the most sacred holy sites in Islam, will be put forth.  

- Financial funds, particularly from the Islamic Development Bank, will be gathered to strengthen the economy of Jerusalem and the Palestinians. A close cooperation with Jordan will be provided to this end.
