Slovenia formally recognizes a Palestinian state
Slovenia has followed suit of Spain, Ireland and Norway by recognizing the state of Palestine, breaking with the long-held view of Western powers that Palestinians can gain statehood “only as part of a negotiated peace with Israel”.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: With the latest addition, 146 of the 193 UN member states now recognize a Palestinian state including most Middle Eastern, African, Latin American and Asian countries.

In April, the US used its veto at the UNSC to prevent a Palestinian bid to become a full UN member state.

After Slovenia’s vote on Tuesday, Prime Minister Robert Golob wrote on X that the recognition “sends hope to the Palestinian people”.

Australia and Malta have also floated the possibility of endorsing Palestinian statehood./Dawn
