The Spanish parliament is set to vote on recognizing the Palestinian state, Al Arabiya News channel reported Thursday.

The announcement comes days after British lawmakers voted overwhelmingly in favor of recognizing Palestine as a state.

The motion – which is non-binding – was passed by 274 in favor to 12 votes against, to “recognize the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel” as part of a “contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution.”

It came only a week after Sweden’s new center-left government is set to officially recognize Palestine – a move that has been condemned by Israel, which says an independent Palestine can only be achieved through negotiations.
