President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he expected to call his American counterpart Donald trump before the White house announced the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In early December, trump announced the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and signed a document about the transfer of the us Embassy there from tel Aviv. The decision of the us leader was well received in Israel and aroused a negative reaction from many countries, primarily countries in the Middle East and Palestine.

The UN General Assembly on Thursday adopted a resolution on non-recognition of decisions of the United States on the status of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, during the vote on Thursday voted for the document 128 countries, nine were against and 35 abstained.

«We leave the link with the head of US at one point or another. However, at the moment a particular decision on telephone negotiations is still pending. I would like to trump called us. From the beginning we were expecting that he would call us before announcing its decision (Jerusalem — ed.). I believe that this error would not have been made if trump stayed with us for consultations, » Erdogan said at a press conference in Ankara.

According to him, these expectations were related to the fact that Turkey is currently chairing the Organization of Islamic cooperation.
