Bolivia declares Israel a terrorist state

Cochabamba - Bolivia has canceled a visa exemption agreement and declared Israel a "terrorist state" in protest of its deadly war in Gaza.

Speaking to educators in Cochabamba, President Evo Morales announced the cancellation of the 1972 agreement which allowed Israeli citizens to travel visa-free to Bolivia.

"We are declaring Israel a terrorist state," said Morales, the first indigenous leader of the Andean nation of 10.5 million inhabitants.

"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," he added.

Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 in the wake of the Jewish state's Cast Lead invasion of Gaza, a three-week campaign in which Israeli forces killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, 926 of them civilians, were killed.

Bolivia declares Israel ‘terrorist state’, scraps visa exemption agreement

Bolivia has declared Israel to be a “terrorist state” and renounced a visa exemption agreement with the country in protest over the ongoing Israeli military offense in Gaza which already killed more than 1,300 dead and left over 7,000 wounded.

Canceling the 1972 agreement which allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” the country’s President Evo Morales announced. Morales explained that Operation Protective edge clearly 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.”

The announcement came after a cabinet meeting of the government of Evo Morales which decided that; “The Bolivian state and people have made a firm decision to terminate the agreement on visas to Israel, from August 17, 1972, signed under a regime of dictatorship in Bolivia and that allowed Israeli citizens to enter Bolivia freely without even entry visa.”

Earlier in July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”

Other Latin American countries including Chile and El Salvador recalled their ambassadors in Israel on Tuesday for consultations due to the increased violence in the Gaza Strip against civilians. The move follows similar actions by Ecuador, Brazil and Peru who have also recalled their ambassadors.
