Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday he was "not impressed" by Muslim leaders' statements on Jerusalem after they urged the world to recognise the city's eastern sector as the capital of Palestine.

"We are not impressed by all these statements," Netanyahu said in a speech, saying he believed many countries would follow US President Donald Trump's lead and recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

His comments came after an emergency summit of the world's main pan-Islamic body, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), on Trump's move last week.
