4 European countries agree to recognize Palestine as a state | Spain, Ireland, Malta and Slovenia have agreed to recognize the state of Palestine. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said this after the European Council meeting in Brussels on Friday (March 22). British news agency Reuters reported this news.


In this regard, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez told reporters that the agreement was reached after meetings with Irish, Maltese and Slovenian leaders on the sidelines of the council’s assembly.

He also mentioned the issue as the first step to recognize Palestine as a state together with the three countries.

In a joint statement after the meeting, Ireland said the only way to achieve lasting peace and stability is to implement a two-state solution.

Arab states and the European Union agreed at a meeting in Spain in November that a two-state solution is the way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Since 1988, 139 of the 193 member states of the United Nations have recognized the Palestinian state.

Meanwhile, the UN Security Council did not pass the US proposal for a cease-fire in Gaza. The resolution failed to pass as the two permanent members of the council, China and Russia, voted against it.
