Lula: recognition of Palestinian state a historic decision

Brasilia, May 23 (Prensa Latina) President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva described on Thursday the recognition of the Palestinian State by countries such as Spain, Ireland, and Norway as a historic decision.

Such courage is a response to “the struggle of an entire people, recognized by more than 140 countries, for its right to self-determination.

This decision will also support efforts for peace and stability in the region,” Lula wrote on social media.

Harmony will only come about, he noted, “when the existence of an independent Palestinian State is guaranteed.”

Lula, who founded the Workers’ Party (PT), also noted that his country was one of the first in Latin America to take this position in 2010.

At that time, Brazil recognized the State of Palestine in the 1967 borders, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The recognition of Palestine by the three European countries will come into force on May 28.
