Move is afoot in France to compel the government to officially recognize a Palestinian state.

According to AFP, left-wing lawmakers in parliament are readying to submit a motion calling on the government to extend recognition.

Last month, the British parliament held a symbolic vote that recognized a Palestinian state. The Swedish government became the first EU actor to recognize Palestine.
