The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed its firm rejection and condemnation of the decision taken by the Republic of Nauru to recognize Al-Quds/Jerusalem as a capital for Israel, a step which the OIC considers as illegal and as a violation of international law and UN resolutions on Al-Quds, particularly UN Security Council resolution no.478 which calls upon all states that have established diplomatic missions in Al-Quds to withdraw them from the Holy City. In parallel, the OIC invited the Government of the Republic of Nauru to rescind this decision and honour its legal and political commitments under international law and resolutions of international legitimacy.
