Newsline: Palestine to Open Embassy in Bolivia

Palestine will open an embassy in La Paz, Bolivia, according to the president of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas. “We will never forget the decisions made by Morales during the Israeli aggression against the Palestine people. We are honored and pleased with the close relationship we maintain with Bolivia,” said Abbas, after meeting with Bolivia’s president, Evo Morales, in New York City. “We want to develop that relationship and I believe we are going to be speaking about a new Palestinian embassy in La Paz very soon,” added Abbas. Morales was one of the several heads of state that denounced the recent Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip, in which more than 2,000 Palestinians were killed -mostly civilians- and called it a “genocide.” As part of the measures taken against the Israeli government, Bolivia declared Israel “a terrorist state” and now requests visas from all Israelis who try to enter Bolivia. In 2009, Bolivia broke its diplomatic relations with Israel due to Operation Cast Lead against Gaza Strip, in which more than 1,000 Palestinians were killed.
