Palestine should have its own state, said Colombia’s ambassador to the United Nations Thursday.
“The position of Colombia is the recognition of the State of Israel but also that Palestinians should have their own state,” Colombia’s ambassador to the UN Nestor Osorio told W Radio.
According to the ambassador, Colombia does not, however, agree with Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory.
Earlier this month Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin said, “We are taking the same steps as the UN. The day they reach a peace agreement with Israel we will recognize the Palestinian state.”
