Palestinians hail France position on UN bid
France has taken a "historic" move in deciding to back a Palestinian move for UN recognition, the Palestinian envoy to the United Nations said Tuesday.


"It is of a magnitude of a historic level and I am sure that many other European countries will follow the example of France and we thank them in advance for being on the side of history and the side of humanity," Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour told reporters. (AFP)
