Europe upgrading the status of Palestinian missions to embassies

The Irish government announced on Tuesday the decision to upgrade the Palestinian diplomatic status in the country to the status of an official embassy, joining a growing list of European countries that have made the same diplomatic move.

The Israeli assessment is that Britain, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Malta, Luxembourg, Austria and perhaps other states are considering a similar move.

On Monday, Peru on Monday announced that it had recognized a Palestinian state, joining a growing number of Latin American countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia, Ecuador and Guyana in making an endorsement the United States has called premature.
