RIYADH — Saudi Arabia welcomed the decisions taken by the governments of Norway, Spain, and Ireland to recognize the State of Palestine.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia applauds the recent decisions by Norway, Spain, and Ireland to recognize the State of Palestine.

“The Kingdom commends the positive step taken by these friendly countries, which reflects the international consensus on the inherent right of Palestinians for self-determination,” the Saudi Press Agency reported quoting the statement.


The Kingdom urged other nations to follow suit, emphasizing that such recognition is bound to pave the way for a “reliable and irreversible path toward just lasting peace that upholds Palestinian rights.

Saudi Arabia reiterated its call to the international community, particularly the remaining permanent members of the UN Security Council, to expedite the recognition of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. “This recognition is crucial for achieving Palestinian rights and a comprehensive peace for all,” the statement added.
