Slovenia Joins Nations Recognizing Palestinian State Amid Gaza Conflict

The Slovenian government, led by Prime Minister Robert Golob, has given its approval to recognize an independent Palestinian state, joining countries like Spain, Ireland, and Norway in this decision.

Golob announced the government’s decision at a press conference in Ljubljana, while Parliament speaker Urska Klakocar Zupancic stated that Slovenian lawmakers will vote on the matter next Tuesday.

This move is part of a broader international effort to exert pressure on Israel to cease its bombardment in Gaza, which has intensified since a cross-border attack on October 7th. The conflict has resulted in numerous casualties and captives. PM Golob has urged an immediate end to hostilities and the release of all hostages, emphasizing the importance of peace.

To symbolize its recognition, the Slovenian government has raised the Palestinian flag alongside its own and the EU flag in front of its building in Ljubljana. This decision follows similar moves by Spain, Ireland, and Norway, which drew criticism from Israel. Among EU member states, several have already recognized Palestine, with others considering it.

While countries like Britain and Australia are contemplating recognition, France believes the timing isn’t right. Germany, echoing the United States, rejects unilateral approaches, advocating for a two-state solution through dialogue. Denmark’s parliament recently voted against recognizing Palestine, while Norway, previously aligned with the US stance, has shifted its position, expressing doubts about its effectiveness.
