Senior Fatah Central Committee member Nabil Shaath estimates that the Palestinian Authority will be able to gain recognition for a Palestinian state from two-thirds of the United Nations before September.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to travel to France on Wednesday to meet with President Nicholas Sarkozy to discuss recognition of an independent Palestinian state.

According to A-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper, Abbas will attempt to convince France to endorse a Palestinian state before approaching the UN in September.
