Slovenia's government on Thursday endorsed a motion to recognize a Palestinian state and asked the parliament to do the same, APA reports citing Yahoo News.

Prime Minister Robert Golob said that his government sent the recognition proposal to parliament, which could convene as early as next week.

Parliamentary approval is necessary for the move to take effect. Golob's ruling liberal coalition has a comfortable majority in the 90-member assembly and the vote should be a formality.

The decision by Slovenia's government comes just two days after Spain, Norway and Ireland recognized a Palestinian state, a move that was condemned by Israel.

With its move, Slovenia is set to become the 10th member of the 27-nation European Union to officially recognize a Palestinian state.
