ISTANBUL - US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital shows that the United States lacks any respect for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian nation, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted on Wednesday.

Rouhani, who attended an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Turkey's Istanbul city on Wednesday, also said on his Twitter account that the move showed that the U.S. was not "an honest mediator and will never be", adding that Washington only wanted to "secure the interests of the Zionists".
