Uruguay says it will recognize an independent Palestinian state, following in the footsteps of Brazil and Argentina, which have officially recognized Palestine.
"Uruguay will surely follow the same path as Argentina in 2011," Uruguayan Deputy Foreign Minister Roberto Conde was quoted by AFP as saying on Monday.
In a letter addressed to acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas, which was read out on Monday by Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman, Argentine President Cristina Kirchner said her country recognizes Palestine as a "free and independent state" as defined by the 1967 borders.'
