Jerusalem Is 'Red Line' for Muslims: Turkey's Erdogan

"Unfortunately, Erdogan does not miss an opportunity to attack Israel", he said in a statement.

The French government also said that Macron and Trump agreed to "revisit this issue again soon", suggesting that Macron understood Trump as undecided on the matter.

This situation can lead to the severance of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Israel. "It is important to preserve Jerusalem's status for the sake of protecting peace in the region", he said, adding, "if another step is taken and this step is lifted, this will be a major catastrophe".

According to Erdogan, Jerusalem is a "Red Line for Muslims".

Both Jordan and Egypt, the only two Arab states with diplomatic ties to Israel, have warned against moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. So too did European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini, who told reporters that the issue topped the agenda of her meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Jerusalem is our capital, and the time has come for the world to recognize this.

"We are imploring the USA once again".

Turkey's president is threatening to cut off diplomatic ties with Israel if US President Donald Trump decides to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying the city is "a red line for Muslims".

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Monday ruled out capital controls as he clarified his demand for measures to prevent the smuggling of wealth overseas by unnamed businessmen he branded as traitors. "The US embassy and the embassies of the rest of the world should be housed in Jerusalem".

Last year, Turkey and Israel reached a rapprochement deal after close to seven years of severed ties due to the death of Turkish activists who attacked Israeli soldiers aboard the Mavi Marmara flotilla, which tried to run the blockade of Gaza.

Monday was the deadline for Trump to sign a six-month waiver to the 1995 "Jerusalem Embassy Act", which mandates the relocation of the embassy.

American officials have said Mr Trump may recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital this week as a way to offset his likely decision to delay his campaign promise of moving the United States embassy there. Trump is also scheduled to call Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and King Abdullah of Jordan.
