PARIS - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Thursday it would "illogical" for the United States to block a Palestinian bid for statehood planned at the United Nations in September.

Abbas, in Paris for talks with French leaders, noted that Washington already backs the formula of a Palestinian state co-existing in peace alongside Israel to end the long-standing Middle East conflict.

"In principle we have a lot of signs that the United States is ready to recognize the Palestinian state," he told France 24 television in an interview broadcast on Thursday. "If the United States is not ready it would not be coherent and logical."
