The Swedish government wants to recognise Palestine, what happens now?
The British Parliament voted yesterday in a symbolic vote to push the British government to recognise Palestine as a state. This comes just after a decision by the new Swedish government that it too wants to recognise Palestine. But how does that actually happen in Sweden? We spoke to Professor Emeritus in International Law Ove Bring, who tells us what the whole process looks like.
Earlier this month Sweden's new centre-left government said it would recognize the state of Palestine, and just yesterday, the UK parliament held its own symbolic vote on the issue and called on the British government to recognise Palestine as a country.
