JEDDAH: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has welcomed the decision of the three Western countries- Spain, Norway, and Ireland- to formally recognize the State of Palestine.

The OIC’s statement stated that this important historic step is in line with international law and pertinent United Nations resolutions, thereby advancing the rightful claims of the Palestinian people and elevating Palestine’s status on the global stage.

The OIC commends such declarations that bolster international efforts to end Israel’s longstanding colonial occupation of Palestinian territories since 1967, including Al-Quds Al-Sharif, and pave the way for justice and liberation for the Palestinian people.

Moreover, the OIC reiterates its appeal to all states yet to extend recognition to Palestine to follow suit and endorse its bid for full United Nations membership. Such actions contribute to international initiatives striving for peace and stability in the region, adhering to the vision of a two-state solution as outlined in relevant international resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
