Belgium’s government have agreed to recognise the Palestinian state, despite diplomatic pressure from Israel and its allies, RT and other international mass media reported yesterday.

The government said it would recognise the Palestinians state “at a moment deemed appropriate”.

Belgian newspaper Le Soir reported that Belgium could become the second European Union member to officially recognise the Palestinian state after Sweden’s decision last month.

In late November Prime Minister Charles Michel said: “But the question is when is the right moment.”
