Erdogan, Putin to meet in Ankara

Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Turkey Dec. 11 to discuss the situation in Jerusalem, the Turkish media reported Dec. 8.

Earlier on Thursday, Turkish presidential sources said Erdogan and Pope Francis had agreed in a phone call that any attempts to change Jerusalem's status should be avoided, after President Donald Trump on Wednesday reversed decades of U.S. policy and recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

On Thursday, the two leaders held a phone conversation to discuss the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying the move would "negatively impact the peace and stability in the region".

The presidents agreed to continue efforts to convince the U.S.to reconsider its decision.

Erdogan also spoke to Presidents Nursultan Nazarbayev, Ilham Aliyev and Michel Aoun, of Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Lebanon respectively, about Jerusalem, the source said.

Moscow said earlier that it considers East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future Palestinian state, and West Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

Referring to the extraordinary summit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) due to be held in Istanbul on December 13, he said the summit would be an important forum to show the Islamic world's united front over Jerusalem, a holy city for Muslims, Jews and Christians.

Erdoğan claimed that no country has the right to neglect global law by trusting its own power, especially when it affects the fate of millions of people, emphasizing that this decision is not only a problem regarding Turkey or Muslims, it also is a problem for Christians.
