(Stockholm) – Sweden’s newly-formed center-left government is set to recognize Palestine as a sovereign state, said Prime Minister Stefan Lofven. If Stockholm proceeds with the move it will be the first EU-member to officially endorse Palestinian statehood.
“The conflict between Israel can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law,” Lofven said during his inaugural address in parliament.
He added that the “two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine,” he concluded.
