Ireland, Spain, Norway to recognise ************ state

Ireland, Spain and Norway have announced they will recognise a ************ state on May 28, saying they hope other Western countries will follow suit – prompting ******* to recall its ambassadors.

Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said the move was aimed at accelerating efforts to secure a ceasefire in *******’s war with ****** in Gaza.

“We hope that our recognition and our reasons contribute to other Western countries to follow this path because the more we are, the more strength we will have to impose a ceasefire, to achieve the release of the hostages held by ******, to relaunch the political process that can lead to a peace agreement,” he said in a speech to the country’s lower house on Wednesday.

Ireland’s Prime Minister Simon Harris announced the decision at a news conference in Dublin.

He added that Ireland was unequivocal in recognising *******’s right to exist “securely and in peace with its neighbours” and called for all hostages in Gaza to be immediately returned.

In Oslo, Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store said the only possible political solution between Israelis and Palestinians was “two states living side by side in peace and security”.

******** Foreign Minister ******* Katz ordered the immediate return of the ******** ambassadors from the three countries for consultations, and warned of further “severe consequences”.

“I am sending a clear message today: ******* will not be complacent against those who undermine its sovereignty and endanger its security,” he said.

The decision was welcomed by the ************ Authority, which exercises limited self rule in the ******** occupied West Bank, and by ******, which has ruled the Gaza Strip since driving the PA out of the enclave in 2007.

About 144 out of 193 member-states of the ******* Nations recognise Palestine as a state, including most of the global south, Russia, China and India.

But only a handful of the 27 EU members have done so so far, mostly former ********** countries as well as Sweden and Cyprus.

Britain, Australia and EU member Malta have indicated in recent months that they could soon follow suit.

Recognition of a ************ state is still opposed for now by *******’s closest ally the ******* States, which has the power to veto it at the UN and did so in April.

Washington says it favours ************ statehood eventually, but only as a result of negotiations with *******, a position it shares with ********* powers including France and Germany.

No negotiations over ************ statehood have taken place since the last round of talks collapsed a decade ago.

******* launched its war in Gaza in retaliation for an October 7 ******** by ****** in which fighters ******* 1200 people and took more than 250 hostages, by ******** tallies.

*******’s operations in the enclave have ******* more than 35,000 Palestinians, according to Gaza’s health ministry.

******* says recognising ************ statehood now would effectively reward ****** for its attacks.

Spain and its allies have spent months lobbying ********* nations including France, Portugal, Belgium and Slovenia to garner support for the recognition of a ************ state.

*******’s foreign ministry said it would reprimand the Irish, Spanish and Norwegian ambassadors and show them a video of female hostages being held in captivity by ******.

Palestinians seek statehood in the ********-occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as their capital.
