Cavusoglu: moving US embassy to Jerusalem is mistake
The U.S.' recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will be a grave mistake, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said ahead of a meeting with his U.S. counterpart Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of a NATO foreign ministers meeting in Brussels.
"Rather than bringing stability and peace, it will bring chaos to the region," Çavuşoglu said, adding that Turkey has shown a clear stance against the U.S. decision, the Daily Sabah reported.
He stressed that the global community, not just Muslims oppose the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and noted that he will express his concerns regarding the matter when he meets Tillerson.
U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will move its embassy there.
