Belgium favours idea to recognise Palestinian as state

Brussels: Belgium's foreign minister has said his country is willing to support the idea of an independent Palestine as part of "a two-sate solution" to the Middle Eastern problems.

Didier Reynders was speaking at a meeting of EU foreign ministers here Wednesday.

"Belgium has long been favourable to the recognition of the Palestinian state," Xinhua quoted the minister as telling medipersons attending the meeting at the European Council headquarters.
