Iran and Turkey on December 6 denounced any decision by the US on moving its diplomatic missions to Al Quds, and described the holy city as an 'inseparable' part of Palestine.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani in a phone call with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said that today, one of the priorities of the Muslim world is the cause of Palestine and confronting the illegal acts of Israel.

'We call on all the Muslim and peace-loving countries to resist such illegal acts,' Rouhani said, IRNA news agency reported.

Referring to any decision on recognizing Al Quds city as the capital of Israel, he said that all the countries should react in a deterrent way to any such move by Washington.

He also said he would take part in the emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which is suggested by his Turkish counterpart.

Meanwhile, Erdogan said any decision by the US President Donald Trump to change the current status of Al Quds would be the result of internal conflicts within Muslim world.

The decision would constitute violation of human rights and all resolutions of the United Nations on Al Quds, according to Erdogan.

The Turkish president said Ankara as the periodic president of OIC urges the Organization to meet in the coming days.

Trump has said he would announce his decision on moving Washington embassy from Tel Aviv to Al Quds city later on Wednesday.

His move has set off alarms throughout the world, particularly in Muslim countries.
