Labour MEPs Lead Drive for EU Recognition of Palestine

The European Parliament voted this month in favour of official recognition of Palestinian statehood in a resolution proposed and legislated by a Labour MEP. There is now a push for all European countries to get behind recognition, with Labour MEPs calling on the UK government to join EU counties to coordinate support for a UN bid for Palestinian statehood. Earlier, Labour MEPs met chief Palestinian negotiator Nabil Sha'ath, who praised the Party's leadership on Palestine.
