ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain has said that Pakistan would take up at all available fora the decision of the US President to recognize occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.    

He was addressing a ceremony held in Islamabad on Thursday to mark National Voters’ Day.

The President expressed the confidence that the OIC meeting to be convened to review the situation would adopt a tough position.

President Trump on Wednesday recognized the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel capital  — a historic decision that overturns decades of US policy and risks triggering a fresh spasm of violence in the Middle East.
