Denmark said it will upgrade the status of the Palestinian delegation to a mission.

Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen at a news conference Wednesday with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said the status of Palestinian diplomats will advance from “Palestinian general representation” to the “Palestinian mission to Denmark,” the French news agency AFP reported.”

Abbas, who was visiting Copenhagen, thanked Rasmussen for his decision, which the Palestinian leader said reflected “the deep commitment between the two countries.”

Denmark’s announcement comes two days after Britain offered the same status upgrade. Several other countries, including European Union members France, Ireland, Portugal and Spain, have made the same move in recent months.
