EU Lawmakers Stop Short of Palestine Recognition Vote

EU Lawmakers Stop Short of Palestine Recognition Vote

(Inform) EU lawmakers stopped short on Tuesday of proposing a joint motion urging EU members to recognize a state of Palestine, settling instead on a compromise resolution that peace talks should progress. Social Democrat, left-wing and Green members of the European Parliament had put forward motions for a symbolic vote on Wednesday to call on the EU’s 28 members to recognize Palestine statehood without conditions. This follows Sweden’s decision in October to recognize Palestine and non-binding votes since then by parliaments in Britain, France, Ireland and Spain in favor of recognition that demonstrated growing European impatience with the stalled peace process.
