Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas failed to persuade French President Nicolas Sarkozy to throw his support behind the Palestinian statehood bid at the United Nations, Israel Radio reported Friday.

Abbas was on the last leg of his most recent diplomatic tour, visiting Paris after stops in Colombia and Venezuela.

The PA president has been seeking further support at the Security Council after the PA claimed to have received the backing of nine member nations.
