Report: Greece will recognize Palestine

The Parliament in Athens is expected to vote on recognizing a Palestinian state. This diplomatic achievement for the Palestinian Authority follows Sweden’s recognition of Palestine and Palestinian flags waving over the UN Building in New York. An official in the Greek government announced that his country will officially recognize a Palestinian state. According to the report, which was not yet confirmed officially, the Greek Parliament will vote on this on Tuesday and Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen is expected to be present. The official stated that the voting will be accompanied by an official ceremony. According to the reports, Abu Mazen is expected to come to Athens today ahead of the voting. If the report is correct, this is another achievement for the Palestinian Authority after Sweden recognized Palestine and Palestinian flags were hung over the UN Building in New York.
