OIC welcomes Paraguay’s decision to withdraw its embassy from Al-Quds

Jeddah, The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has welcomed Paraguay's decision to withdraw its embassy from occupied Jerusalem (Al-Quds), considering this as an affirmation to respect its legal and political obligations under the international law and relevant United Nations resolutions.

The Secretary-General of the Organization, Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen, said that this step is in the right direction, stressing the illegality of any actions that would prejudice the historical and legal status of the city of Al-Quds, calling at the same time on all countries to adopt positions and actions that support the chances of achieving peace based on the vision of a two- state solution and promote stability in the region.

On the Palestinian affair, the Organization condemned the decision of the Israeli Supreme Court to evacuate and demolish the bedouin village of "Al-Khan Al-Ahmar" in the east of Jerusalem (Al-Quds).
