Aboul Gheit welcomes the announcement by Spain, Ireland and Norway to recognize Palestine and confirms: an important step towards embodying the independent state

grandmother (UNA) - Mr. Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, welcomed the announcement by Spain, Ireland and Norway to officially recognize the State of Palestine, and said that this step reflects a real conviction in the two-state solution and a sincere desire on the part of these countries to defend it and save it from those who want to sabotage and eliminate it.

Jamal Rushdi, the official spokesman for the Secretary-General, said that this important step comes in the wake of the recognition of Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Bahamas, so that these countries join the overwhelming majority of countries in the world that have previously taken the same step, bringing the total number of countries that recognize the Palestinian state to about 147 countries, adding that recognition represents a major pillar of the state in international law.

Rushdi quoted the Secretary-General of the League as confirming that this step reflects the sound political, moral and legal position, and that it represents an important milestone on the path to embodying the Palestinian state on the borders of June 1967, XNUMX, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Aboul Gheit stressed that recognition sends the correct message to the Palestinians that the world is determined to defend their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state, and that the current tragedy, with all the pain and suffering it entails, will ultimately lead to a political path that leads to the embodiment of the Palestinian state.

Aboul Gheit called on the various countries in the world that did not take this step to review their positions and stand on the right side of history, stressing that recognition of Palestine reflects a true belief in the two-state solution, charts a path different from the approach of violence, and contributes to establishing peace and security in the entire region.
