French National Assembly Resolution on Recognizing Palestine (2014)

A resolution adopted by the National Assembly, the lower house of the French Parliament, by a vote of 339 to 151, on 2 December 2014. It called on the French Government to recognize the State of Palestine in the context of a two-state solution and a definitive settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The resolution was one of five non-binding resolutions supporting recognition of Palestine adopted by parliaments of European states in late 2014, followed in December by a similar resolution adopted by the European Parliament, along side official Swedish recognition of Palestinian statehood.
