France will not recognize a Palestinian state on its own, but the possibility of the entire European Union doing so "should be kept in mind," French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday.

Speaking to his parliament's foreign affairs committee, the French foreign minister said: "There's no point recognizing the Palestinian state on our own. It must be done together," AFP reported.

"Personally we're not there yet," he said, but added, "I think that it's a possibility that should be kept in mind."
