Ireland reveals the approaching date for its official recognition of the State of Palestine


Dublin – Ireland revealed yesterday that the date for its official recognition of the State of Palestine is approaching, in coordination with several other countries. The new Irish Prime Minister, Simon Harris, confirmed that his country is close to officially recognizing the Palestinian state, pointing out its desire to do so in coordination with other like-minded countries.

“Let me say this, our assessment is that this point is getting very close, and we would like to move together to do that,” he said, adding, “As we move forward, we would like to do so with as many other countries as possible to lend weight to the decision and send the strongest message to everyone.”

He explained that Dublin will continue discussions with other like-minded countries in Europe and beyond, including during the European Union leaders’ meeting next week.This follows statements made by Irish Foreign Minister Michael Martin, earlier this week in which he said that he was preparing to submit a proposal in an official statement from the government regarding recognition of the Palestinian state.

Ireland, Malta and Slovenia announced last month that they would work together towards recognizing a Palestinian state, especially in light of the continuation of the brutal aggression launched by the Zionist occupation against the Gaza Strip for more than six months, leaving infinite numbers more than 33 thousand martyrs and more than 77 thousand wounded, in addition to massive destruction of infrastructure, and an unprecedented displacement movement.
