EU parliament backs the recognition of Palestinian state 'in principle'
Members of the European Union’s Parliament revamped the proposal regarding the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Instead of calling for the recognition of a “Palestinian” state, it was agreed upon by the Parliament members to word the proposal as such: “The European Union supports, in principle, the recognition of a ‘Palestinian’ state and a two-state solution, and believes that such steps must take place simultaneously in order to further peace talks.”
