Greek Parliament Set To Recognize Palestinian Statehood

2

Greek parliamentGreece is set to join several other European nations in recognizing a Palestinian state with a non-binding symbolic declaration that will take place after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas addresses the Greek parliament on Tuesday.

Despite the expected vote, relations between Israel and Greece remain strong following an agreement on bilateral cooperation in various industries and Greece’s refusal to implement the European Union’s guidelines to label Israeli products from Judea and Samaria, the Golan Heights, and eastern Jerusalem.

However, the resolution is not a formal recognition of a Palestinian state such as the one Sweden made last year, which has strained relations with Israel.
