Abbas instructs embassies to refer to State of Palestine

Jan. 6, 2013 10:05 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 6, 2013 10:05 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday issued instructions to Palestinian embassies around the world to change all references to the Palestinian Authority to State of Palestine after the UN vote in November.

Palestine was voted in as a non-member state by the UN General Assembly on Nov. 29, 2012.

No amendment should be made to references to the PLO, which remains Palestinians' legal representative on the world stage, the presidential order said.
