Uruguay Recognizes Palestinian State

The Republic of Uruguay has recognized a free and independent Palestinian state on the lands occupied by Israel in the Six Day War.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Uruguayan foreign ministry said the decision to recognize a Palestine state showed the country’s firm commitment to the Middle East peace process, Reuters reported.

Uruguay’s decision is in line with international support for United Nations resolutions demanding the end of Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The international community backs Palestinian demands for a state in most of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem) — all territories Tel Aviv occupied in the 1967 Six Day War.

Israel has persistently continued constructing settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds despite the United Nations’ condemnation of the action.

Over 100 countries have endorsed the Palestinians’ 1988 declaration of independent statehood.

Among them, several Latin American countries, such as Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela, have recognized an independent Palestinian state.
