    (ANSAmed) - PARIS - France's Socialist deputies headed by ex-Justice Minister Elisabeth Guigou are getting ready to present a resolution at the National Assembly in favor of recognizing a Palestinian State, parliamentary sources were quoted as saying by local media on Wednesday.

    The motion should be voted in the coming weeks and, even if approved, would not be binding for the French government but would have a symbolic value and could lead the presidency and cabinet to reconsider their position on the issue.

    The resolution, at the center of a meeting of the Socialist group at the Assembly on Tuesday, will also be discussed on Wednesday by Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in an informal meeting at the Quai d'Orsay to be attended by Socialist senators who are thinking about presenting a similar motion, according to internal sources.(ANSAmed).
