Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan expressed his satisfaction with Ireland, Norway, and Spain’s recognition of an independent Palestinian state during an award ceremony held in Ankara, reports RTE.

According to Jennifer Carroll MacNeill, Minister of European Affairs, Ireland acknowledged the state of Palestine in order to support the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination.

“Ireland today recognises the state of Palestine, which it has said it would do for a very long period. We had always hoped that it would be in the course of a negotiated solution, a negotiated political solution,” she said, reports RTE.

Following the announcements by Ireland, Spain, and Norway that they would recognise a Palestinian state, Poland has stated that it supports a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

“We will support the efforts of the High Representative of the European Union and other countries that believe that some long-term, stable solution is needed,” Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski (pictured) said, reports RTE.
