UN set for implicit recognition of Palestinian state

Published: 11.29.12, 08:28 / Israel News

The UN General Assembly is set to implicitly recognize a sovereign state of Palestine on Thursday despite threats by the United States and Israel to punish the Palestinian Authority by withholding funds for the West Bank government.


A Palestinian resolution that would change the Palestinian Authority's UN observer status from "entity" to "non-member state," like the Vatican, is expected to pass easily in the 193-nation UN General Assembly. (Reuters)
