November 8, 2014 09:23

Additional European nations have reportedly threatened to follow suit of Sweden and unilaterally recognize Palestinian statehood if peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority are not relaunched.

A Wall Street Journal report published late Friday cited senior US and European officials as reporting the potential move that some of Washington's main allies have considered. "Other European countries are poised to follow Sweden," a senior European official told the WSJ.

"We're not going to wait forever," the official was quoted as saying in reference to the potential of his country to decide to recognize a Palestinian state.
