P.A. Asks European Countries for the Recognition of Palestine
On Thursday, Palestinian negotiators asked to a number of European countries to recognize a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders, as a new strategy to failure of peace talks. Meanwhile, the U.S. approved a resolution opposing a possible unilateral declaration, Haaretz reported.
According to Palestinian officials, a request was sent on Wednesday to the consuls general of France, Britain, Sweden and Denmark as well as the European Union envoy to the peace process, asking to recognize a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders. A previous appeal was sent to the European Union earlier this week.
