Uruguay recognises Palestine statehood

Uruguay has joined a string of South American nations in recognising an independent Palestinian state.



Montevideo: Uruguay has joined a string of South American nations in recognising an independent
Palestinian state.

A Foreign Ministry statement says Uruguay has
communicated its decision to the Palestinian Authority.

However, the statement does not explicitly say whether
the country recognises Palestine`s borders predating the
Six-Day War of 1967, when Israel captured the West Bank and
Gaza. Foreign Ministry officials declined to clarify the matter.
More than a half-dozen countries in South America have
recognised Palestine recently, though in different ways.

Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador and Paraguay
recognised the pre-1967 borders. Chile and Peru said the issue
must be worked out between Israelis and Palestinians.
