Palestine – non-member observer state status –
Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

The United Nations General Assembly has just granted Palestine the status of non-member observer state. France made a choice consistent with the goal of two states living in peace and security, expressed as early as 1947.

This vote is in line with my commitment to support international recognition of the Palestinian state. But it will become a reality only in the framework of a just and comprehensive peace settlement. In order to achieve this goal, the negotiations must resume, without preconditions and as soon as possible.

Indeed, direct dialogue is the only way to find a definitive solution to this conflict. France is ready to contribute to it, as a friend of both Israel and Palestine.
