The move would only be symbolic, though, and wouldn't have any actual ramifications for the USA or Israel.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu will travel to the US on December 20 to attend the voting on a draft resolution rejecting the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital at the United Nations, private broadcaster CNN Türk has reported.

Mansour said on Monday he hoped there would be "overwhelming support" in the General Assembly for the resolution. "A two-thirds support in the General Assembly would actually mean the rejection of the decision made by the Security Council", he added.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged on Tuesday to introduce at the UN General Assembly the resolution on Jerusalem's status vetoed by the U.S. on Monday when it came before the Security Council. Such a vote is non-binding, but carries political weight.

Turkey will take the resolution General Assembly, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

The Future Movement Tuesday condemned the US position in a statement after its parliamentary bloc's meeting, saying it was biased toward Israel and was a flagrant violation of worldwide resolutions in support of the Palestinian right and the rights of the Palestinian people. All other UNSC members voted in favor of the resolution on Monday. The draft United Nations resolution calls on all countries to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem.

Only 10 such sessions have been convened, and the last time the General Assembly met in such a session was in 2009 on occupied East Jerusalem and Palestinian territories. She said the veto - the first cast by the U.S.in more than six years - was done "in defense of American sovereignty and in defense of America's role in the Middle East peace process".

Although its biggest allies in the United Nations, including the UK and France, have slammed the decision, U.S. envoy Nikki Haley has repeatedly stated that it was the "right thing to do", as Jerusalem is indisputably the capital of the Jewish state.

"What we witnessed here in the Security Council is an insult", she said. Palestinians want the capital of an independent Palestinian state to be in the city's eastern sector, which Israel captured in a 1967 war and annexed in a move never recognised internationally.
