LONDON - The leader of Britain's opposition Labor Party said on Friday he favored recognizing Palestine as a state if such a move would help bring about a broader peace deal in the Middle East.

Ed Miliband was asked by a reporter if Britain would recognize Palestine in the first year or two of his premiership, if Labor wins national elections on May 7.

Miliband said Labor backed a symbolic vote held last year in Britain's parliament in favor of recognizing Palestine.
