Armenia Recognizes Palestinian State

Armenia has declared its official recognition of the state of Palestine, a move that directly challenges Israel's stance against such actions.

The Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs cited the humanitarian crisis in Gaza as a pivotal issue on the international political agenda requiring resolution.

In a statement, Armenia reaffirmed its staunch rejection of targeting civilian infrastructure and violence against civilians.

The ministry expressed support for UN General Assembly resolutions calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and emphasized its commitment to a peaceful, comprehensive resolution to the Palestinian issue, endorsing the two-state solution.

Following Armenia's announcement, Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Armenian ambassador to deliver a stern rebuke to Yerevan.

This comes after Ireland, Spain, and Norway also recognized Palestine based on the 1967 borders on May 28.

Armenia's decision brings the total number of countries recognizing Palestine to nearly 148 out of 193 UN member states, including major nations in the southern hemisphere, Russia, China, and India.
