US recognition of Jerusalem a 'bomb' in the Mideast: Erdogan

US recognition of Jerusalem a 'bomb' in the Mideast: ErdoganThe decision by US President Donald Trump to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel is a “bomb” thrown at the entire Middle East, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday. Erdogan, who has sought to steer often disunited Muslim nations into a coordinated response on the issue, said Muslims would never accept the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The US step is a “new bomb thrown into the lap of the Middle East,” Erdogan said in an address marking the opening of a new metro line in Istanbul.
