belgium-supports-full-palestinian-membership-in-the-un
Brussels, May 6 (Prensa Latina) Belgium will support the entry of Palestine into the United Nations as a full member, Foreign Minister Hadja Lahbib announced today.

This is an important first step for peace in the Middle East, said Lahbib in a message on her official account on the social network X, after meeting in this capital with Riyad al-Maliki, the special envoy of President Mahmoud Abbas.

In this way, the country will join Spain, which last month defended before the United Nations Security Council the entry of Palestine as a full member, although the request did not go ahead due to the US veto.

Currently, of the 193 countries that make up the UN, 139 recognize Palestine as a state.
