Bolivia on Wednesday renounced a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over its offensive in Gaza, and declared it a terrorist state.
President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba.
It "means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state," he said.
The treaty has allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia without a visa since 1972.
Morales said the Gaza offensive shows "that Israel
is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the
elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious
coexistence of our international community."http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News/World/2014/Jul-30/265522-bolivia-declares-israel-a-terrorist-state.ashx
