The US State Department announced that the diplomatic recognition of  Palestinian Authority in the US will be upgraded to the status of "delegation general" Israel Radio reported Friday.

This will allow the Palestinian envoys in Washington to display the Palestinian flag and provide social benefits for their employees.

Palestinian representative to the US in Washington Maen Areikat said that the step equates Palestinian diplomatic status in the US to that of Canada and many other countries in western Europe.
