Sweden will become the first major European country to officially recognise Palestinian statehood.
Stefan Lofven, the head of Sweden’s new centre-left Social Democrat government which was voted with 31% of the national vote, made the announcement during his inaugural address to parliament.
“The conflict with Israel can only be solved by a peaceful two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law,” Lofven told the legislature in Stockholm.
