Greece won’t fully recognize Palestine, but will still tout move

The Israeli Foreign Ministry has no immediate comment on Greece’s planned recognition of Palestine.

The recognition will not be a full measure, like Sweden where the government recognized Palestine, but rather closer to what happened in Britain, France and Spain and Belgium, where the parliaments recognized the Palestinian state.

However, officials in Athens are playing this up as if it’s a full recognition, with an official ceremony with Abbas slated for Tuesday.
