U.S. Opposes Change in Palestinian Statehood Status at UN

State Department spokeswoman says, "We think it is a mistake"


WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- The U.S. government says a bid by Palestinian leaders to get more U.N. recognition "is a mistake," a government spokeswoman said.

The U.N. General Assembly could vote as early as Thursday on a measure that would move the Palestinians from an observer state to a non-member observer state.
