SANTIAGO, Chile — A top US diplomat on Wednesday said Latin American nations are perfectly free to show their points of view on the Mideast peace process.

US Assistant Secretary of State Arturo Valenzuela said that negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians are so complex that it's better not to be too specific when they make their declarations.

Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile in recent weeks have issued recognitions of a Palestinian state, although unlike the others Chile did not urge that Israel return the land it seized in 1967.

Valenzuela was asked in Chile to comment on the recognition actions. He said advocating for such details as where Israel and Palestine should draw their border can complicate the negotiations.
