Armenia Joins Countries Recognizing Palestine Amid Gaza Conflict

Armenia has formally recognized the State of Palestine, aligning itself with other nations such as Norway, Spain, and Ireland in a departure from traditional Western policies that tied Palestinian statehood to negotiated peace with Israel.

The announcement from Yerevan underscores Armenia’s support for a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and its advocacy for a United Nations resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. This move by Armenia reflects its commitment to international law, sovereignty, and peaceful coexistence among nations, amid ongoing tensions in the region exacerbated by recent events in Gaza.
