Turkish & Egyptian FMs assess Syria and Palestine
Turkish FM Ahmet Davutoglu and his Egytian counterpart Mohammed Kamil Amr have assessed latest developments on Syria and Palestine

CAIRO
A written statement by Egyptian Foreign Ministry said that the two ministers discussed the aborted truce in Syria and Palestine's initiatives to gain a non-member state status at UN.
The Palestinians are to ask the United Nations to upgrade their status to become a "non-member observer state" by the end of 2012. With that status Palestine is planning to join UN International Crime Court in order to sue Israel for war crimes.
In September 2011, Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority sought full member-state status at the UN based on pre-1967 frontiers. But the bid effectively stalled two months later after Security Council members said they had been unable to "make a unanimous recommendation".
Most of the developing countries and European countries except UK and Germany, in the 193-membered UN General Assembly are supporting a Palestine state.
The Palestinians have long sought to establish an independent, sovereign state in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip - occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six Day War.
