Chile and Uruguay will soon join the ranks of South American countries recognizing a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, Israel Radio quoted a Palestinian Authority official  as saying.

PA official Riyad al-Maliki said that Chile will recognize the Palestinian state in the coming weeks. He added that Chilean President Sebastián Piñera plans to visit the West Bank within the next three months.

Maliki said that Paraguay was also expected to recognize the Palestinian state, with Uruguay following in March.

According to Maliki, a Palestinian embassy will be opened in Ecuador, who has already announced its recognition of a Palestinian state.
