ATHENS - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that US President Donald Trump's "unfortunate" decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was "trampling on international laws."

Erdogan speaking in Athens after talks with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, also said Turkey wanted to see a lasting solution on the island of Cyprus, but said Greek Cypriots were avoiding talks.
