June 12, 2024

Barbados and the State of Palestine have signed a joint declaration establishing diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The signing between Barbados Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Francois Jackman and his Palestinian counterpart took place at the Permanent Mission of Barbados to the UN in New York.

The two parties decided diplomatic relations would be based on international law, as well as respecting national sovereignty, regional safety, independence and international treaties.

In April Barbados became the 140th member of the United Nations to recognise the State of Palestine and the 11th member of CARICOM to do so.
