Slovenia recognizes a Palestinian state after parliamentary vote

SloveniaSlovenia recognized a state Palestinian on Tuesday after its Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of the measure, following the recent footsteps of three other European countries.

The government backed a motion last week to recognize a Palestinian state and sent the proposal to Parliament for final approval, needed for the decision to take effect.

The 90-member Parliament voted 52 in favor and none against on Tuesday. The remaining lawmakers were not present for the vote.

Slovenia’s decision came days after Spain, Norway and Ireland recognize a Palestinian state, which was condemned by Israel.

Previously, only seven of the 27 EU members officially recognized a Palestinian state. Five of them are former Eastern bloc countries that announced recognition in 1988, as did Cyprus, before joining the EU. Sweden’s recognition occurred in 2014.
