The Algemeiner reports: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged on Tuesday to introduce at the UN General Assembly the resolution on Jerusalem’s status vetoed by the US on Monday when it came before the Security Council.

“Now, God willing, we will carry the resolution to the UN General Assembly,” Erdogan said at a joint news conference with the Djibouti’s President Ismail Omar Guelleh.

Erdogan claimed in his remarks that “two-thirds support in the General Assembly would actually mean the rejection of the decision made by the Security Council.” However, resolutions of the General Assembly are legally non-binding.
