Abbas: Palestinians will go to Security Council over full U.N. membership

CAIRO (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday the Palestinians will “go to the United Nations Security Council” over full U.N. membership after the U.S. decided to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Abbas, who spoke at an extraordinary meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul, did not elaborate on how the Palestinians intended to become a full member state.
