Kalin also said he expected that several issues concerning Palestine such as the two-state solution, ending the occupation, recognition of Jerusalem as its capital, return of Palestinian refugees to their land, and the Middle East peace process would gain fresh momentum after the OIC declaration.

KEITH: Salvation Army puts donations to use
The goal for 2017 was to raise $135,000 for the Christmas campaign, says Lieutenant Samuel Tim of the Yorkton Salvation Army. Donations can also be made through the Free 98-1 Rockin' the Stockin' Toy Drive, which benefits the Salvation Army .

Najib said this is in order to prevent their actions from being misinterpreted by the global community and negatively affect the image of Muslims.

" We must work together as Muslim brothers, and with the worldwide community, to ensure that the status of Al-Quds Al-Sharif is negotiated within the framework of a two-state solution".

The OIC called on the Arab Muslim world to join efforts, regionally and worldwide, to harness all the diplomatic means available to counter such measures and face up to the United States unilateral decision rejected by most of the world countries.

The Prime Minister said the impasse in the Middle East Peace Process needs pragmatic solutions based on global laws and norms, and hoped the USA can make a helpful contribution to that. "We must be reminded that Al-Quds Al-Sharif is sacred to Muslims and is also a place of great religious significance for other faiths", he said.

It is to mention here that Pakistan has called upon the United States to refrain from any move that altered the legal and historical status as well as character of Al-Quds, urging USA to fully comply with all applicable UN Security Council resolutions including UNSCR 478.

The extraordinary summit which is being held on Wednesday has been called by the President of Turkey in his capacity as the Chair of OIC.
