"This milestone moves us closer to achieving a just peace in the Middle East. For all other governments who have not done so, know this: the world is waking up to the Palestinian cause and their pursuit of justice will not be denied.

"Join us in righting the course of history," said Anwar on X, formerly Twitter, on Friday (May 24).

On Thursday (May 23), several international media reported that the three countries have announced they will formally recognise a Palestinian state, from May 28.

An Al Jazeera report noted that globally, 143 of the 193 United Nations member states recognise a Palestinian state.
