’TIS THE REASON…
Ecuador is the latest country to recognize an independent Palestinian state.
The government said on Friday that President Rafael Correa recognized “the Palestine State as free and independent within its borders since 1967.”
Others countries — such as Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay — recently made the same move. These diplomatic initiatives come after the breakdown of direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
Palestinians have been seeking international recognition of an independent state, a strategy to achieve statehood outside the framework of talks with Israel.
