It should be noted that the original text stated: “It is worth noting that eight members of the European Union already recognize Palestine, namely Bulgaria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, the Greek administration of southern Cyprus and Sweden”.

Immediately after the announcement was issued by the Palestinian Authority, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was alerted and diplomatic steps were taken to vary the announcement.< /strong>

According to information, in fact, there is said to have been an apology from the special office of the Palestinian President to the representative of the Republic of Cyprus to the United Nations.
