Jeddah (UNA-OIC) – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) rejected and condemned the decision of the Republic of Paraguay to relocate its embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem.

The Organization stressed that this illegal act constitutes a provocation and a flagrant violation of international law and of all relevant United Nations resolutions.

in this regard, the OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen noted that this action, even if it creates a reality, would not establish a right or acquire legitimacy.

He called on the UN Security Council to assume its responsibilities in this regard. He pointed out that the last OIC extraordinary summit held in Istanbul on May 18 decided to take appropriate political, economic and other measures towards those states that take such steps.
