French parliamentarians on Friday were set to debate a resolution on the recognition of Palestinian statehood ahead of Tuesday's slated vote on the symbolic maneuver.

The resolution brought by France's Socialist Party follows in stride of the recent trend of European parliaments recommending their governments recognize a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

Earlier this week, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy came out against the vote on the non-binding decree on unilateral state recognition.
