Members of the European Parliament take part in a vote, Wednesday Dec. 17, 2014, in favor of a resolution on recognition of the statehood of Palestine at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, eastern France. The European Parliament has stopped short of pushing for outright recognition of a Palestinian state, and instead is urging renewed peace talks. Legislators voted 498 to 88 on Wednesday in favor of a compromise resolution supporting “in principle recognition of Palestinian statehood”, but as part of a two-state solution.
