Shin Bet predicts that several European countries will recognise Palestinian state

The Director of Israel's internal intelligence service, Shin Bet, has said that he believes that several European countries will recognise an independent Palestinian state, joining seven Latin American countries which have declared their recognition of Palestine recently. Yuval Diskin made his remarks during a meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee on 18 January.

Diskin also predicted that the UN General Assembly will offer recognition to an independent Palestinian state by adopting a resolution to that effect during its next session due to begin in September.
