LONDON - British foreign policy towards Palestine will not change, even if lawmakers on Monday vote in favor of a motion stating that the government should recognize it as a state, Prime Minister David Cameron's official spokesman told reporters.

Britain does not class Palestine as a state, but says it could do so at any time if it believed it would help the long-running peace process between the Palestinians and Israel.

"I've been pretty clear about the government's position and it won't be changing," Cameron's spokesman said ahead of a debate due to take place later in the day. He said Cameron would abstain in the vote along with other government ministers.
