French MPs Vote in Favour of Recognising Palestine State

French lawmakers voted in favour of recognising Palestine as a state Tuesday, following similar moves in Britain and Spain that reflect growing European frustration with the stalled Middle East peace process.

The highly symbolic vote in the lower house National Assembly calling for the government to recognise a Palestinian state passed with 339 in favour and 151 against. While it is not binding on French policy, it is likely to anger Israel.
