Slovenia and Spain Agree To Jointly Recognize State of Palestine

April 16, 2024 (EIRNS)—"The most important thing is that we have addressed a whole series of questions—when, not if, but when is the best moment to recognize Palestine,” Slovenian Prime Minister Robert Golob told reporters, after his meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez to discuss the Gaza crisis.

The two agreed that their governments would recognize Palestine together, but left open when, Middle East Monitor reported. Golob said he did not want to speak of timelines, because this whole situation and how to resolve it depends on “a whole range of international factors.” However, Slovenia would vote in the United Nations Security Council for full membership of a Palestinian state, Golob said. “Recognizing Palestine as a state is just one step and that is how the talks have been going. It may be a first step, but it is certainly not the only step and it will not be enough,” Slovenia’s national public broadcasting company, RTV Slovenija, quoted Golob as saying.
