The Recognition of a Palestinian State

(Dp-news – Sana)

DAMASCUS- The Palestinians will go to the UN General Assembly next September to get the recognition of a Palestinian state, based on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry on Monday issued the following statement: The Syrian Arab Republic recognizes the state of Palestine within the lines of June 4th 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital on the basis of preserving the legitimate Palestinian rights.

The statement also says that Syria will view the office of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in Damascus as an embassy as of the date of issuing this statement.



For his part, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas welcomed Syria's recognition of the Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, hailing it as a major step which supports the Palestinian efforts to attain UN recognition in September.

Saeb Erakat, Member of Fatah Central Committee, said the Palestinian President welcomes Syria's recognition as a major step which backs the Palestinian efforts to resort to the UN Security Council.

In a statement to SANA, Abdulhadi said this recognition constitutes a great support to the Palestinian cause and the efforts of the Palestinian people to attain UN recognition of the Palestinian state in September.

He said the PLO highly appreciates the stances of Syria, which constitutes the strategic depth of the Palestinian cause, at the international forums, hailing the solid fraternal relations between the Syrian and Palestinian peoples.

The Palestinian Liberation Organization opened its first bureau abroad in Damascus on November 1st, 1964.
