Iran's Supreme Leader Hamas Blast US Plan to Relocate Its Embassy to Jerusalem

"We call on Muslim peoples to enter into a big uprising against the plot of transferring the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem", Rouhani said in a press statement during an event in capital Tehran.

"I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel", Trump said from White House's Diplomatic Reception Room. This conference also would prove a major setback for Israel as it unites the Muslim "Ummah" against Israel.

While the region requires stability and security, such illegal moves of the USA and Israel could push "the Palestinian state and the whole region" toward instability, Rouhani added.

The statement also called on the global community to pressure the United States not to go through with the embassy move or the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"This is a long overdue step to advance the peace process and to work towards a lasting agreement", Trump argued, saying his announcement is just a "recognition of reality".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani denounced as "provocative and dangerous" the U.S. decision to recognize Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the Israeli regime's capital, calling for concerted action by Muslim and peace-loving nations to defy such an illegal measure.

Given the fact that the city of Quds is considered as occupied according to the United Nations resolutions, the USA action to recognize this city as the capital of the occupation regime of Quds is considered to be a blatant violation of global resolutions.

He added that Israel is "responsible for all the insecurity and instability" in the region.
