    On 30 October 2014 Sweden became the first European Union country to recognize the State of Palestine. 130 other nations that already recognize the Palestinian State include Hungary, Slovakia and Poland, although these three countries took this step before joining the EU. Non-EU member Iceland is the only other western European nation to recognize the Palestinian State. However, Israel protested against the Sweden decision and the Israeli Foreign Ministry summoned the Swedish ambassador shortly after the announcement.
