Slovenian government approves decision to recognize Palestinian state alongside Israel

The Slovenian government has approved a decision to recognize an independent Palestinian state, Prime Minister Robert Golob says, following in the steps of Spain, Ireland and Norway.

“Today the government has decided to recognize Palestine as an independent and sovereign state,” he says at a news conference in Ljubljana.

The parliament of the European Union member country must also approve the government’s decision in the coming days.

The move is part of a wider effort by countries to coordinate pressure on Israel to end its war against Hamas in Gaza, which began following the October 7 massacre carried out by the terror group in southern Israel.
