Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday night that US President Donald Trump's recognition doesn't automatically make Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
"With one announcement by a country, Jerusalem cannot be the capital of Israel," he said. "You can't come out and say, 'I'm a great power, I can do what I want.'
"There can be no understanding under which one can say I made such an announcement and it will become reality," Cavusoglu insisted.
He said "the whole world opposes it and it is wrong."
Cavusoglu also described Trump's move as a "dangerous step," adding, "we would have wished that this decision were never taken."
