French lawmakers to debate recognition of Palestine

French lawmakers to debate recognition of Palestine
French lawmakers are going to participate in a debate on Friday on a motion urging the government to recognise Palestine as a state, amid growing European frustration at the moribund Middle East peace process.

The symbolic motion is expected to pass comfortably on December 2 when the lower house of parliament votes on the text proposed by the ruling Socialists. The vote comes hot on the heels of a similar resolution approved by British lawmakers on October 13, Spanish MPs on November 18 and the formal recognition by Sweden on October 30.The text “invites the French govt to use the recognition of the state of Palestine as an instrument to gain a definitive resolution of the conflict”.
