Barbados joins several other countries recognising Palestine

April 19, 2024

Barbados has taken a bold step to recognise Palestine as a state.

The announcement from Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kerrie Symmonds brings the island in line with the majority of UN Member States that have done so.

The European Union as a whole does not recognise Palestine, nor do the United States and Canada.

Government has faced calls in recent times from a number of local organisations to recognise Palestine.

Mr. Symmonds says Barbados believes the recognition of Palestine is critical to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian question.
