PLO Closes Office in Bolivia

Download PDF for this date

The Palestine Liberation Organization has blamed “economic difficulties” for the decision to close down its office in Bolivia after 11 years.

But the Anti-Defamation League says it is “another sign of the PLO’s loss of credibility.”

According to I. Barry Mehler, chairman of ADL’s Latin American Affairs Committee, “the loss of PLO’s credibility in Latin America and its growing irrelevance in an era that has witnessed the return of democratic governments throughout the region” are the main reasons for the move.

Mehler predicted that the PLO offices in Mexico and Peru would be next to go.

Because of Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, the Daily News Bulletin will not be published on Tuesday, Oct. 1, or Wednesday, Oct. 2.
