London [UK], May 7: The Irish and Spanish prime ministers have had further discussions on the recognition of the state of Palestine.
Taoiseach Simon Harris and Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez spoke by telephone on Monday morning following discussions in Dublin and Brussels last month. Harris said it was their third conversation in recent weeks, and that they are eager to make progress on this very shortly.
"We discussed the dire situation in the Middle East and particularly in Gaza and agreed to continue working together to push for an immediate ceasefire, the unconditional and immediate release of all remaining hostages and for a surge in humanitarian assistance," he said.
"I also discussed with Prime Minister Sanchez our ongoing work together on recognizing the state of Palestine," he said. "We reaffirmed the wish for both Spain and Ireland to recognize Palestine."
