Brussels, April 13, 2024 (LANA) - European Council President Charles Michel said that European Union countries wishing to recognize the State of Palestine must move side by side in order to “make significant progress” in building peace in the war-torn region.

  Speaking to reporters in Brussels this week, Michel proposed an  EU-level coordination among member states willing to formally recognize a sovereign Palestinian state, a move that has gained momentum since Spain, Ireland, Slovenia and Malta endorsed it last month.

Michel, tasked with forging a consensus among all 27 EU leaders, suggested that other same intention countries from outside the bloc join the initiative.
