May 28, 2024

On May 28, the Danish Parliament rejected a proposal by left-wing parties to recognize the Palestinian state.

This is reported by Reuters.

The bill on the recognition of Palestine was submitted to the parliament by four left-wing parties. A representative of one of them, Sasha Faxe, said that this step is the only way to achieve a stable peace in the Middle East.


“The overwhelming majority of Danish politicians agree that there will be no lasting peace in the Middle East without a two-state solution,” she said during the meeting, referring to the existence of internationally recognized Israel and Palestine.

The parliamentarians rejected the proposal, supporting the Danish government's position that there are no necessary conditions for recognizing a Palestinian state.

Danish Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen has previously explained that Palestine does not meet the criteria for statehood, in particular, it does not have any functioning government and control over its own territory.
