Peru recognizes Palestinian state

Peru said on Monday it had recognized a Palestinian state, joining a growing number of Latin American countries in making an endorsement.

Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia and Ecuador, among others, recognized the Palestinian state.

Peruvian Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Garcia Belaunde said on RPP radio, "Palestine is recognized as a free and sovereign state."

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas thanked Brazil several weeks ago for allowing his nation to open its first embassy in the Americas and said other countries were following suit.

Palestinian authorities are hoping for a diplomatic domino effect to back their claim for a state in all of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
