Via Times of Israel:
The Greek government will soon officially recognize the state of Palestine, the country’s ruling Syriza party told Palestinian lawmakers on Saturday, the Palestinian Legislative Council said in a statement.
According to Palestinian news agency Ma’an, the Greek pledge came during a meeting between a Syriza delegation and Palestinian MPs in Ramallah, although no specific time frame for the recognition was provided.
Ma’an said that the Greek delegation met with a group of Palestinian politicians that included Azzam al-Ahmad from Fatah, Qays Abdul Karim from the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Mustafa Barghouti of the Palestinian National Initiative.
“Due to some special circumstances, the Greek recognition of the Palestinian state has been delayed, but it will come soon,” the Greek delegation said, according to the report.
