PLO lauds UK lawmakers' vote on Palestinian statehood
The PLO welcomed on Monday a vote by British lawmakers on a non-binding motion to recognize Palestinian statehood, and called for London to officially amend its state policy and classify "Palestine" as a state.

“Our right to self-determination has never been up to negotiations. The recognition of Palestine is not contingent upon on the outcome of negotiations with Israel and certainly not something we will trade for; this claim is not only unfair, but immoral,” said senior PLO official Hanan Ashrawi.

Ashrawi lauded the vote, saying it "sends the right message to the British government and the rest of Europe."
