France to Back Palestinian Statehood at UN, Fabius Says

Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz warned the Palestinians they face “surprises” if they proceed with a bid to upgrade their status at the United Nations, a move also opposed by the U.S.

“If the Palestinian Authority thinks it can attack us in the UN and we will continue our cooperation on the ground with them, there are some surprises in store,” Steinitz said in an interview today on Army Radio. “When and to what degree -- that we will have to discuss and decide.”
