France said Thursday that European nations were considering unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state.

“Recognition of the state of Palestine is one of the options which France is considering, with its European partners, in a bid to relaunch the peace process,” AFP quoted French Ambassador Gerard Araud as telling a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East.

By contrast, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, urging Israelis and Palestinians to return to the negotiating table, reiterated her opposition to a proposed UN declaration of Palestinian statehood.
