Guyana recognizes ‘Palestine’

Guyana became the seventh Latin American state in recent weeks to recognize a Palestinian state. "It is Guyana's hope that the increasing recognition of the state of Palestine will contribute to a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the creation of lasting peace and stability in the region," Al Jazeera quoted the Dutch-speaking nation's foreign ministry as saying on Thursday. Brazil precipitated a flood of recognitions in December. The Palestinian Authority has been lobbying in Europe and Latin America, the two international regions that did not join the first flood of such recognitions in the early 1990s, partly to seek leverage in the stalled talks.
