Arab League welcomes decision of European countries on Palestine

Cairo, May 22 (Prensa Latina) The Secretary General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, celebrated the decision of Norway, Ireland and Spain to recognize the State of Palestine and called on other nations to follow that example.

The functionary issued a statement thanking the three countries for their position, which will be officially approved next Tuesday. The decision of the three nations “places them on the right side of history, in this conflict,” he stressed, and added: “I call on countries that do not yet recognize Palestine as a state to follow this courageous, principled example.”

Shortly before, the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, had also celebrated the decision of Oslo, Madrid, and Dublin.

The secretary of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Hussein Al-Sheikh, wrote in X that “[These are] Historical moments in which the free world triumphs for truth and justice after long decades of national struggle, suffering, pain, occupation, racism, murder, oppression, abuse and destruction (…) We thank the countries that recognized and will recognize the independent State of Palestine, we affirm that this is the path to stability, security and peace in the region,” he highlighted.

In recent weeks, the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Jamaica also announced a similar decision.
