seven member organization of islamic cooperation denounced the american action as dangerous and a violation of international law mamma died over reports from istanbul of the hastily convened mixing of the organization of islamic cooperation members would recognize the palestinians to eat with occupy it is jealous of the most its capital there was strong could admissions to football for us to settle. the palestinian president mahmoud abbas declared the palestinian school no longer accept the u.s. as a mediator in the middle east peace process in his strongest statement yet since donald trump's announcement abbas called the move a kind of odd to you and to take over the peace process we didn't want that the united states chose to lose its role and eligibility as a mediator and not to have a role in the political process we will not accept any american role in the political process from now on the u.s. is biased to israel that is our position this is
a major crime that requires us to come out with decisive decisions that protect the identity of jerusalem until we end the israeli occupation of the state of palestine the summit was convened by the turkish president through egypt and on a self-proclaimed champion of the palestinian calls heloise dood. starman killer although i would like to call all nations around the globe to respect international law to rise up and recognize jerusalem as the occupied capital city of the state of palestine we will never give up on our demand for a free and sovereign palestinian state the capital of which is jerusalem and as islamic countries we condemn the violence of israeli soldiers we are palestinian brothers and sisters protesting the latest decision of the united states and the ones hopes of uniting muslim leaders behind a top final statement from the meeting also rewarded in the end the organization of islamic countries also adopted the palestinian course and status of jerusalem as
its core mission also at the meeting walking up the love jordan the lebanese president michel on the emir of qatar ship to mean being home adult any and there any in president hassan rouhani they called on muslim nations to unite to defend the rights of palestinians i mean dean is it isn't call mother giving up the art when you reach rock bottom of the only way you can go is trump's declaration might be what the palestinian cause needed to come back into the limelight i see hope in the future. in a sign of cracks in the unity of the muslim world so did it be an egypt water presented a junior level and took a box it in the proceedings in common seemed to be aimed at soda iranian president hassan rouhani said the only reason tom dedrick was generous in the most the capital of israel was because some in the region was seeking to establish ties to israel donald trump some most wanted last week prompted
a must of all pouring off in the muslim world pencil fall those people flock to those roots to israel and express their solidarity with the palestinians muslim leaders today here humble opportunity to do the same but everything from here on in depends on how the agreement they reach here gets implemented mohammed at the wall does it or stumble. in washington the state department responded to the oh i see declaration by insisting that it will continue to work as mediator in the israeli palestinian conflict as you all well know the president is committed to this peace process as committed as he has ever been and that has not changed that type of rhetoric that we heard has prevented peace in the past and it's not necessarily surprising to us that those types of things would be said we remain hard at work in putting together our plan we believe that that will benefit both the israeli and the palestinian people are on the ground protests against the american movie
continuing in several parts of the occupied palestinian territories at least one hundred twenty people were wounded across the west bank after israeli forces fired gas and rubber coated steel bullets hoda abdel-hamid has the latest from ramallah. well certainly the anger. disappointment disillusionment and this really a lack of hope that anything will get better any time soon now if you ask people how they felt about the speech of mahmoud abbas earlier today they said it was the strongest they heard to him since a while but they were also disappointed that the final communique thinking that that did not go far enough that there's no concrete steps now people are feeling is that. they fear that eventually despite all the efforts of mahmoud abbas to go to the u.n. to go to the i.c.c. to exclude the u.s.
from any future peace negotiations if indeed they start at any time soon they fear that they would be pressure at some point and that he might have to backtrack people say the words are all good but we've heard so many good words in the past so many promises so many. agreements signed and so many times where peace was hailed as big as being there coming soon well none of that happened twenty five years of efforts have gone down the drain so at the moment they don't really believe in anything. really spanish directs the new internationalism project at the institute for policy studies and she thinks or i see some of declaration was strong on rhetoric but no on action. i think the notion of strong language has always been a feature of oh i see events strong action has never been i'm not sure this is going to be very different with only a couple of exceptions i would question whether any of the countries in the oh i
see intend to do anything to do for example downgrade their own relations with the united states would saudi arabia cut its military ties and stop buying hundreds of billions of dollars of arms from the united states would cut her agreed to two in the us use of qatari soil for its base for fighting wars in the middle east would other countries do anything to cut their ties with with the united states i don't see any evidence of that there was no call for such things in the declaration and i think this is likely to be one more example of very strong words and very weak action in other world news south korea's president in is in beijing for talks with his chinese counterpart xi jinping moni is hoping to get the relationship back on track after the u.s. deployment of an anti-missile system anger china the increasing threat from north korea will be high on the agenda kathy novak reports from seoul. it's
a decades old relationship that hit a bumpy patch and says his first visit to china as president will be an opportunity to mend fences results to the biggest goal and focus of my visit this time will be rebuilding mutual trust between south korea and china. china is south korea's largest trading partner and some businesses recently got a taste of what happens when chinese customers stop spending. as north korea ramped up its nuclear weapon and missile program seoul went ahead with the installation of the u.s. missile defense system known as stad and china got extremely angry seeing the system's powerful radars as a security threat it retaliated with an unofficial boycott against tourism and businesses it was a very rude a wake up call for a major corporations in south korea. too much of it on china's economy is special.
tourism with china will not be a long term solution some have begun diversifying this traditional korean restaurant expanded its selection to include hollow meat attracting visitors from southeast asia and the middle east. we get customers from all over the world including africa and south america many of my customers are business people looking for a whole lot of food in the south korean government wants to expand cooperation with southeast asian countries but china is unlikely to be replaced anytime soon but china will remain for a long long time south korea's lifeline but this is hardly a one way relationship south korea is one of china's top three trading partners in october the two countries put their differences over thad aside effectively agreeing to disagree going some way to restoring relations and allowing them to better address other common issues. mainly the threat from north korea the other
issue likely to be high on the agenda during moon's visit south korea wants china to impose harsher sanctions against the government in pyongyang and china prefers a proposal that would see south korea and the united states scaling back joint military exercises in exchange for north korea agreeing to freeze its nuclear weapons development it will likely take much more than this summit to find agreement on that kathy novak al jazeera sole. u.k. prime minister to resign may have suffered a major blow to her authority after m.p.'s halted in favor of the banks it measures she strongly opposed a doesn't a dozen government m.p. sided with the opposition to require the economy enter a vote on the u.k.'s final breaths it deal with the european union may have promised parliament what she called a meaningful vote on frank said but oppose moves to make that vote finding the amendment passed by four votes and is likely to complicate may's efforts to

taking forever exactly but i'm not surprised really because you've got britain standing on its own now against the rest of the year and they're all going to want by you want and you know we're going to become very small fry again one and a half years off to the brics that vote the country is still divided roughly down the middle opinion polls show that very few people regret their decision that still vote exactly the same way today somehow the prime minister. to bring a divided country together statement the prime minister she believes she's doing that securing last week's deal on britain's withdrawal terms this is good news to the people who voted to leave they were worried that we were so bogged down in the negotiations torturous negotiations it was never going to happen it's good news for people who voted remainder worried we were going to crash out without a deal i we are going to go we're going to do so in a smooth and orderly way. for now progress it and he says are ready to trust the
prime minister even as they grumble about the tens of billions of dollars britain will have to pay as it leaves me what i will not have been agree to is any kind of money being used as a as a bribe you know we don't we're a big enough country not to feel that we have to bribe anybody but i do think we should pay the commitments that we have made certainly up until the time we leave european leaders are likely to agree to start talks about a future relationship with britain it's slow but brecht's it seems to be moving forward although he expects storms ahead final destination far from certain barnaby phillips al-jazeera essex. still ahead on al-jazeera the philippines congress extends martial law on the southern island of mindanao and facing long lines for basic necessities a cash strapped government turns to. from
