Khaleda Zia urges Trump to review his decision on Jerusalem

Dhaka, Dec 10 (Just News): BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia on Sunday voiced deep concern over US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying it will seriously affect peace and stability in the Middle East, and the two-state solution efforts.

In a statement, she urged the US President to review his decision immediately.

"I'm deeply worried like the other peace-loving people of the world over the fresh commotion in the Middle East generated by US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital," the BNP chief said.

Khaleda Zia thinks the US President's decision is a 'slap' on the right and desire of Palestinian people to live independently in their own country.

"This decision has disheartened not only the Palestinians, but also every peace-loving person of the world. I strongly protest the unilateral decision against the repressed Palestinian people," she said.

The BNP chairperson called upon all concerned and global leaders to take effective steps for establishing permanent peace in the Middle East by recognising the justified demand of Palestinian people.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump formally recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital, breaking with decades of US policy and defying overwhelming global opposition.
