Turkey's Erdogan says US decision on Jerusalem disregards United Nations

ANKARA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday the United States' decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital completely disregarded a 1980 United Nations resolution regarding the status of the city.

 

Erdogan also said the decision would throw the region into a "ring of fire". He was speaking to supporters at the airport in Ankara before departing to Greece for an official visit.
