Palestinians are waiting for confirmation from the Untied States whether it will use its veto power at the United Nations Security Council this September when the Palestinian Authority is expected to request recognition for an independent state, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, currently in Norway, said that Palestinians would go to the UN General Assembly were any Security Council member to veto the state bid.

Norway has upgraded its relations with the Palestinians, granting PLO representatives a delegation status.
