State of Palestine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Over 100 countries have made a formal statement recognizing the State of Palestine.
I noticed, though, that you didn't answer my question. What and who defines a sovereign State?
Montevideo is the capital of Urugay. The signatories were not all from South America. They were from the Americas as a whole. The United States was also a signatory.
What does that have to do with the Middle East? I think qualifications for statehood has a lot to do with the Middle East, especially when the discussion is related to Palestine.
