Europe, December 14, (Pal Telegraph-Agencies) – The European Union says it is prepared to recognize a Palestinian state in the wake of a groundswell of international support for the Palestinians.
In a statement issued on Monday, the EU Foreign Affairs Council said it "reiterates its readiness, when appropriate, to recognize a Palestinian state,".
The EU also said such a state had to be "contiguous and viable."
Brazil and Argentina recently recognized Palestine, and Uruguay and France have pledged that they will follow suit.
