Turkey will host an extraordinary meeting of Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Dec. 13 to discuss Jerusalem, said the Turkish presidential spokesman on Wednesday.

Axar.az reports citing AA that the U.S. should correct its “grave mistake” on Jerusalem’s status, Ibrahim Kalin told a press conference in the capital Ankara.

Trump is widely expected to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday and begin preparations to move the U.S. Embassy to the city.

The decision would place the U.S. at odds with the rest of the world -- excluding Israel -- reverse decades of American policy, and block any effort to resume long-stalled peace talks between Israel and Palestinians, according to most analysts.

Jerusalem remains at the core of the perennial Israel-Palestine conflict, as Palestinians want Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state.
