Bolivia has officially recognized a Palestinian state, responding to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' request.

Bolivian President Evo Morales announced last week Bolivia's intention to join Brazil and Argentina, who have already recognized an independent Palestinian state, as part of what Israeli sources have dubbed the 'soft intifada.' Morales announced the official approval of the recognition during a press conference. (AFP)
