Norway’s parliament asks government “to be ready” to recognize Palestinian state

Norway’s parliament adopts a resolution calling on the government to be ready to recognize an “independent” Palestinian state:

Passed with an overwhelming majority in parliament, it said the assembly “asks the government to be ready to recognize Palestine as an independent state when recognition could have a positive impact on the peace process, without making a final peace accord a condition.”

The wording means that no recognition is likely in the immediate future, but is a sign of the concern over the Israel-Hamas war in national assemblies across Europe.
