Colombia has recognized Palestine as a free, independent and sovereign state. The announcement by the Palestinian Embassy in Bogotá came on the same day as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley visited the Colombia-Venezuela border and escalated the Trump administration’s rhetoric demanding the ouster of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.

Nikki Haley: “This is a crisis where the region has not been as loud and active as we would like to see. We think they need to do more. But the international community, the world in general, needs to realize that we have a dictator in Venezuela that is doing everything to protect himself and is sacrificing all of the Venezuelan people to do it.”
