Following several European countries that recently recognized Palestine as an independent state, the Slovenian Parliament overwhelmingly voted to recognize Palestine.

On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Slovenian lawmakers voted 52 votes in favor (a clear majority and without opposition) to recognize Palestine as an independent country.

Tanja Fajon, Slovenia’s Foreign Minister, addressed Palestinians after the approval of this resolution, stating, “Dear people of Palestine, today’s final decision by Slovenia is a message of hope and peace.”

Slovenia’s decision came a few days after Spain, Norway, and Ireland recognized Palestine, an action condemned by Israel.

The ongoing conflict in Gaza has drawn international attention, with many countries calling for an immediate ceasefire to prevent further civilian casualties and destruction.

The United Nations and various human rights organizations have urged both sides to engage in peaceful negotiations to resolve the conflict and ensure the safety and well-being of civilians.
