Irish parliament backs recognition of Palestinian state

Irish lawmakers urged their government Wednesday to recognise Palestine as a state in a symbolic motion that sailed through parliament unopposed. Ireland’s parliament is the fourth European assembly to call for the recognition of Palestinian statehood since October. Sweden has gone even further, officially recognising Palestine as a state in a move that prompted Israel to recall its ambassador. The non-binding motion agreed by lawmakers in Dublin called on the government to “officially recognise the State of Palestine, on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the capital, as established in UN resolutions”.
