Lebanese FM Adnan Mansour said that recognition of a Palestnian state will be a priority when Lebanon takes over the leadership of the UN Security Council in September, Lebanon's Daily Star reported on Tuesday.

"When Lebanon heads the Security Council in September, one of its first priorities will be to vote in favor of a Palestinian state with Arab states and other countries in the world," said Mansour, according to the Daily Star report.

Leadership of the UN Security Council is on a rotating basis. Lebanon's turn is in September.
