E-001596/2019(ASW)
Answer given by Vice-President Mogherini on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-001596/2019

The EU position on the Middle East Peace Process has been set out clearly most recently in a speech by the High Representative/Vice-President at the plenary session of the European Parliament on 16 April 2019.(1)

The EU is committed to achieving a two-state solution — based on parameters set out in Foreign Affairs Council Conclusions — that fulfils the legitimate aspirations of both parties, including Israeli and Palestinian security needs and Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty, that ends the occupation that began in 1967 and that resolves all permanent status issues, in order to end the conflict.

The EU considers all settlement activity illegal under international law. Settlements erode the viability of the two-state solution.

As regards EU-Israel relations in general, the EU and its Member States have consistently reiterated that regular and frank dialogue will remain the primary means by which the EU conveys its concerns to Israeli partners.
