The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Bolivarian People and Government is pleased to convey the warmest congratulations to the brave People and Government of the State of Palestine for the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the proclamation of its independence.
Through the Proclamation of Algiers, the Palestinian People and its leaders expressed their support to peace in the region by recognizing the UN proposal, that is, the two-state solution. Likewise, they affirmed their right to exercise sovereignty within the borders of 1967 –including East Jerusalem as its capital city; borders that the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela recognizes as the legitimate ones.
The People and Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela seize the opportunity to reaffirm its hopes for the respect for the right of the brotherly Palestinian People to live in peace within their legitimate borders.
