Norway, Spain, Ireland indicate to recognize Palestinian state
May 22, 2024

Norway, Spain, Ireland and several other European Union member countries have indicated to recognise an independent Palestinian state.    

Norway's Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere at a news conference in Oslo said we must keep alive the only thing that can provide a safe home for both Israelis and Palestinians: two states that can live in peace with each other.

Germany says an independent Palestinian state remains a firm goal of German foreign policy.

 Saudi Arabia has also praised the decision by Ireland, Norway and Spain to recognise a Palestinian state and called on other countries to do the same. Jordan welcomed recognition of Palestinian state by these states.

Slovenia and Malta have also indicated in recent weeks that they plan to make the recognition.
