"France will vote yes" when the question is asked at the UN General Assembly, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has told the lower house of parliament.

The Palestinians' status in the UN is currently a permanent observer. Palestinian National Authority (PNA) President Mahmoud Abbas plans to submit a bid to upgrade the status of the Palestinians at the UN Thursday.
