Following the opening of Kosovo's embassy in Jerusalem, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates (MOFAE) called on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to break relations with Kosovo.
In a letter to OIC Secretary-General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki made this appeal.
Malki, speaking on behalf of Palestine, urged OIC representatives to sever relations with Kosovo in accordance with the organization's stance against countries that violate international law, Islamic summit decisions, and international legitimacy resolutions.
According to the MOFAE, this action is "a deliberate assault on Palestinian citizens, their rights, and a flagrant breach of international law."
Last month, the Kosovo Republic declared the opening of its embassy in Jerusalem.
As a result, Kosovo has joined the United States and Guatemala as the only countries with embassies in the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Kosovo, a Muslim-majority country, has promised to open an embassy in Jerusalem after establishing diplomatic relations with Israel last year with the help of the United States.
