Portugal’s parliament has accepted a resolution calling on the government to recognize Palestine’s statehood.
The resolution, jointly filed by the Portuguese center-right majority and the opposition Socialist party on Friday, proposed “recognizing, in coordination with the European Union, the state of Palestine as independent and sovereign.”
Portuguese Foreign Minister Rui Machete said after the vote that the government “will choose the moment best suited” for the recognition of the Palestinian state.
