Foreign Secretary William Hague has said UK may abstain in a key vote on upgraded diplomatic status at the UN for Palestinians.

He said the UK would not oppose moves to recognise the Palestinians as a "non-member observer state".

But he said he needed a number of assurances, principally that the Palestinians would seek negotiations with Israel "without pre-conditions".

Palestinian diplomats said they had rejected the "unrealistic" demands.
