Policy: – The Progress Party supports a two-state solution in the Middle East. But the creation of a Palestinian state must be part of a negotiated solution, and we must also be sure that we do not recognize what could become an Islamist dictatorship. A recognition now is in reality a strengthening of forces that do not want negotiations and compromises, says Listhaug in an email to NTB.

– 143 countries have already recognized Palestine as their own state, but the state of Palestine does not exist. Therefore, this appears more like a symbolic act that will satisfy the Palestine Committee and other far-reaching activists on the Norwegian left, says Listhaug.
