EMPA expresses serious concern at absence of progress in Middle East

28 janvier 2010

The Bureau of the Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly has expressed its serious concern at the absence of progress in the Middle East peace process, urging the parties “to resume negotiations without delay in order to implement the two-state solution and to find a way, through negotiations, to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of two states”.

Following its meeting in Rabat, Morocco, under the Presidency of the Jordanian Senate, the Bureau adopted a statement on the Middle East peace process calling on the parties to live up to the expectations of their populations by swiftly agreeing on the establishment of an independent, democratic, contiguous and viable Palestinian State, living side by side in peace and security with Israel”.

The statement also expressed concern at the continuing suffering of the civilian population in Gaza. Regarding settlements, it welcomed – “while considering this far from sufficient” – the Israeli government’s recent decision temporarily to suspend all settlement activity. The statement also categorically condemns attacks on Israel and Palestine, and calls on Israel to prevent settlers from committing acts of violence against Palestinian civil population”.
