# Recognition of Palestine

Palestinian flag flies and Taoiseach greets families as Ireland formally recognises Palestine
The Government has agreed to establish full diplomatic relations between Dublin and Ramallah.
Taoiseach Simon Harris said that the decision "is about keeping hope alive".
He told the Dáil today that he has "no knowledge" of any Irish exported technology being used by Israel as part of its assault on Gaza.
The Dáil was temporarily suspended this afternoon after a group of protesters in the public gallery interrupted statements to call for sanctions to be imposed on Israel.
