Costa Rica: Palestine's UN bid is a step to ensure peace

The Costa Rican government said in a statement Monday their favorable support for Palestine's bid as a non-member observer state in the United Nations  is a “step to ensure...peace between the Israeli and Palestine populations."
The official text added that the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government are legitimate leaders, stating: “The current directors of the Palestine National Authority and Israel deserve our support. They are legitimate alternatives to terrorism, extremism and multiple actors interested in frustrating peace."
The UN resolution obtained 138 votes in favor of Palestine, 9 against, and 41 abstentions.
