Which countries have recognized a Palestinian state?

Palestine has been recognized as a state by most countries around the world, with few exceptions in Western Europe, North America, Australia, Japan, and South Korea. The declaration of the establishment of a Palestinian state was made by Yasser Arafat in 1988, following the start of the first Intifada. Algeria was the first country to officially recognize an independent Palestinian state, followed by forty other countries including China, India, Turkey and most Arab nations.

Africa, the Soviet bloc, Central America and Latin America also recognized the Palestinian state. The Palestinians have been making diplomatic efforts on the international stage for many years now. They gained observer status at the United Nations in 2012 and became full members of UNESCO in 2011. This new status allowed them to join the International Criminal Court in 2015 despite objections from some countries like Israel and the United States.

Some European countries like Sweden, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Bulgaria have already recognized Palestine as a state while France has hinted at recognizing it under certain conditions. Countries like Spain, Ireland Malta Slovenia have also hinted at recognizing Palestine under specific circumstances. These diplomatic moves reflect ongoing efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that has been plaguing for decades now. However they have also led to strained relations between some European countries and Israel
