The city council of Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, approved by an overwhelming majority the naming of one of the city's important streets after "Palestine State".

Iran PressAmerica: This plan won the approval of the majority last year after the public debate and was approved yesterday in the council meeting with the strong support of the representatives of the majority of the Colombian parties.

The Zionist lobby tried hard to prevent the proposal from being passed, claiming that some of the residents of the street are Jewish and that this measure would affect their morale.

Last year, ِduring the UN General Assembly, Colombia voted for a resolution asking the International Court of Justice to give an "advisory opinion" on the issue of Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories.
