France takes step to recognize the Palestinian state

The lower chamber of the French parliament has voted to call on the government to recognize the state of Palestine in order to achieve a final regulation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict

Palestinians believe that this vote, which will not give rise to any legislative initiatives, is a symbol of growing support in Europe.

The French government supports the idea of a Palestinian state, but has announced that it is too early to recognize it at present. The country, which has the right of veto at the UN Security Council, wants first to reanimate peace talks.

The Israeli ambassador to France previously spoke against the proposals for the resolution, saying that it undermines the process of peaceful regulation, as it encourages the Palestinians to avoid taking part in talks.
