Following Brazil and Argentina's footsteps, Uruguay announced Monday that it recognizes an independent Palestinian state based on 1967 borders, according to AFP.

"Uruguay will surely follow the same path as Argentina in 2011," Uruguayan Deputy Foreign Minister Roberto Conde told AFP.



"We are working towards opening a diplomatic representation in Palestine, most likely in Ramallah," he said.

The Palestinian ambassador in Argentina reacted with "joy and enthusiasm" to Argentina and Uruguay's announcements on Monday, and said he expected other South American countries to follow suit, reported AFP.
