According to the foreign minister of the country, Luis Murillo, the opening of the embassy in Palestine was carried out based on the order of President Gustavo Petro. The event took place on the same day that Norway, Spain and Ireland recognized the state of Palestine.
Colombian President Gustavo Petro has become one of Israel's fiercest critics since the start of its aggression in the Gaza Strip.

The genocide of the Palestinian people by the Israelis led to the complete severance of both diplomatic and economic relations between Tel Aviv and Bogotá. Petro appealed to the International Criminal Court with the request to issue a warrant for Netanyahu's arrest.
On Monday, the prosecutors of the International Criminal Court announced the same demand.
