KUWAIT, June 21 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday declared that the State of Kuwait acclaims Armenia's official recognition of the State of Palestine.

It has affirmed the State of Kuwait's stand that calls upon all states to take similar decisions to find a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause.
Up to 149 states out of 193 that are members of the UN General Assembly have recognized the State of Palestine. (end) mmj.rk
