Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos on Friday said that as incoming European Union president, his country will work towards the establishment of a Palestinian state by 2010. "My idea, and my dream, and my engagement, is to work for having in 2010, finally, a Palestinian state that could live in peace and security with Israel," Moratinos was quoted by AFP as telling reporters in Brussels. The Spanish foreign minister stressed that a Palestinian state could only be established through negotiation. "It has to be done through negotiation, it has to be done by agreement, it has to be done through international community recognition," he reportedly said.
