RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority foreign minister said Thursday that the government was studying the steps toward joining more international organizations and agreements.

Riyad al-Malki said officials were hopeful to initiate applications "as soon as possible" now that Palestine is recognized as a state and can theoretically join dozens of UN and international agencies.

Al-Malki was speaking at a meeting with the Spanish consul-general to Jerusalem, Alfonso Portabliss, and the foreign minister praised Palestinian-Spanish relations and Spain's support for Palestine at the UN.

Portabliss told al-Malki that Spain would continue to support Palestine, a statement from al-Malki's office said.

The UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in November to let Palestine upgrade its status to the rank of "non-member" state, angering Israel and the United States.

The easiest thing would be to accede to the UN's Vienna Conventions on the Law of Treaties and Diplomatic Relations. The signatories, including the United States, would have a treaty obligation to treat Palestine as state capable of concluding treaties, exercising consular rights for prisoners, & etc.
