US President Donald Trump reversed decades of US policy on Wednesday by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel is not acceptable to anyone in the Islamic World.
She also said the Palestinians have a right and their own state will have to be recognized.
“There is a UN resolution on Jerusalem and steps should be taken according to the resolution. Taking any unilateral decision by declaring Jerusalem as the Israeli capital will create unrest in the entire world, she said when a journalist drew her attention to US President Donald Trump’s latest move at a press conference in Ganabhaban, prime minister’s official residence.
