The Palestinian Authority has received a green light from the Arab League to seek UN recognition of a Palestinian state, PA officials said Wednesday.

The officials told The Jerusalem Post that no date has been set for presenting the application to the UN. But one official said that the application would be presented to the UN “probably before the end of the year.” He said that the application would include a request for recognition of Palestine as a non-member state of the UN.
