      PA UN Observer Presented as Representing a State

      Riyadh Mansour, the Palestinian Authority's observer at the United Nations, registered a diplomatic victory after he took part in an international meeting at U.N. headquarters with the status of an observer representing a state, according to Kol Yisrael government radio.

      It was a gathering of nations that were signatories to a maritime agreement. Israel and the United States, which are not signatories, objected to the PA's state status, but the objection was rejected.
