PARIS, Oct.16 French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Laurent Fabius Wednesday said that France will recognize the State of Palestine once a two-state solution is achieved.
When asked during a session at the French National Assembly about whether France will recognize a Palestinian state in the future, he said, “Once we have said that there must be two states, there will necessarily be recognition of the Palestinian State. It goes without saying, it is logical.”
He explained, “Recognition should be linked to negotiations, but if we reach the point where negotiations are impossible or don’t have any conclusion, France should naturally face its responsibilities.”
Fabius stressed that t in due time, France will recognize Palestine as an official state.
