Armenia recognises Palestinian state

Published

on

Armenia has joined the list of countries to recognise an independent Palestinian state.

The country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs disclosed this in a statement in Yerevan on Friday.

The ministry said Armenia had always regarded a two-state solution as the best way out of the conflict between Israel and Palestine.

The statement read: “The catastrophic humanitarian situation in Gaza and the ongoing military conflict are among the primary issues on the international political agenda that require settlement.

“We are convinced that this is the only way to ensure that both Palestinians and Israelis can fulfill their legitimate aspirations.”

The ministry revealed that Israel has summoned the Armenian ambassador to deliver a rebuke.

In recent weeks, Norway, Spain, Ireland, and Slovenia have recognised a Palestinian state to exert pressure for a resolution to the decades-old conflict.

However, there is currently no visible practical path to a two-state solution.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vehemently rejected a two-state solution.
