Srinagar: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to cut diplomatic ties with Israel over reports that the United States plans to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, reports said.
Such a move would be a “red line” for Muslims, reports quoting Erdogan said on Tuesday.
Reports emerged on Friday that US President Donald Trump was considering recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a move that would be symbolised by relocating the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, upsetting decades of US policy.
The plan has drawn criticism from a number of world leaders who fear it would further escalate regional tensions.
