MEPs support European peace initiative in the context of the two-state solution


Monday 3 Jul 2017

The EU should play a leading role in the promotion of a just peace between Israel and the Palestinians that is based on international law – and we will only begin on the path towards peace with a two-state solution. Therefore I was very pleased to support the European Parliament resolution adopted in May, supporting the two-state solution in the Middle East and calling for EU action.

The ongoing conflict in the region is of deep concern to Irish people and I receive many emails from constituents expressing dismay at the ongoing violence. People want to know what the European Parliament is doing to address human rights violations and question EU Israel relations – and I have gathered together the following links to media releases to provide an overview of  our work in this complex policy area.
