Indonesian President Condemns Trump's Jerusalem Declaration

The minister said she had coordinated with her counterparts in OIC member countries, adding that all of them rejected the recognition of U.S. President Donald Trump over Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

With parliamentary elections scheduled for next year, Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak was more forceful. Since the 1967 Six-Day War with its Arab neighbors, Israel has controlled the entire city, seizing the eastern part from Jordan.

Wearing a traditional Palestinian scarf while delivering the speech, Retno emphasized that Indonesia and its people would always be committed to the Palestinian people. "And we urge the United Nations to convene a meeting to respond to the unilateral decision of the U.S". "Recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not a recognition of the reality on the ground; it is an expression of support for Israeli policy, much of which is in contravention of global law".

A statement posted on the Indian Foreign Ministry website said: "India's position on Palestine is independent and consistent".

Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in her opening speech at the Bali Democracy Forum on Thursday that Democracy meant respecting global law, while the recognition by Trump as well as his decision to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem did not respect various United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

Washington recognized the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday, and planned to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Indonesia is a relentless supporter to Palestine, repeatedly called for the two-state solution that allows the two states of Palestine and Israel to live together side by side in peace and harmony, Marsudi said.
