Palestine turns to UN in battle for statehood

Palestine turns to UN in battle for statehood:

"AlJazeeraEnglish | December 10, 2010

Is recognition the road to a republic? With direct talks derailed, Palestinians are looking to the UN as a means to establish statehood.

Brazil and Argentina announced this month that they recognise Palestine as an independent state, and other Latin American countries have signalled they will follow suite in the coming months.

Now Palestinian leaders are looking to the United Nations for an official declaration recognising Palestine along its 1967 borders.

But as Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports from New York, the victory of official statehood could be largely symbolic.
