Swiss House of Representatives does not want to recognize Palestine as a state

The Swiss House of Representatives does not want to recognize Palestine as an independent state. On Tuesday, it rejected a corresponding motion from the ranks of the Social Democratic Party. The matter is therefore off the table.
By 131 votes to 61 with 2 abstentions, the House of Representatives said ‘no’ to the postulate put forth Fabian Molina of the Social Democratic Party. Only the Social Democratic Party and the Greens supported it. However, the topic raised numerous questions in the House of Representatives. The tone was, at times, emotional.
