ISTANBUL - A draft declaration prepared for a summit of Muslim leaders on Wednesday said they considered Washington's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as a sign of US withdrawal from its role as a sponsor of Middle East peace.

The draft declaration seen by Reuters also declared "East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine, and invite(s) all countries to recognize the State of Palestine and East Jerusalem as its occupied capital."
