Parliament Speaker welcomes international recognition of Palestinian State

SANAA, May 23 (YPA) – The Speaker of the Yemeni Parliament, Yahya Al-Rae’i, has welcomed the decisions of Spain, Norway, and Ireland to recognize the State of Palestine.

In a statement on Wednesday, Al-Rae’i considered these decisions a positive step in the right direction to affirm the right of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state.

He pointed out that this step, although late, is the beginning of a sense of responsibility towards the injustice of the Palestinian people after more than 75 years of occupation, killing, destruction, and forced displacement.

“The move also expresses an awakening against the policy of imbalance, in which the international community has lost many legal, humanitarian, and moral considerations,” he added.

The Speaker of the Parliament noted that the recognition by Norway, Spain, and Ireland of the State of Palestine came at a time when the Zionist entity has been waging a war on Gaza since last October 7th, resulting in more than 115,000 martyrs and wounded, most of them children and women.

He called on the rest of the countries of the world to stand responsibly for the full recognition of the Palestinian state, expressing gratitude and appreciation to Spain, Norway, and Ireland, and all the countries that have recognized the Palestinian state.

The Speaker of the Parliament reiterated the affirmation of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and the establishment of their independent state with Al-Quds as its capital.

Ireland, Norway, and Spain have formally recognized the Palestinian state, angering the Israeli regime that recalled its ambassadors from the three European states.
