Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Paul Nuttall (EFD)

 Subject: Durban III Summit — US and EU boycott
 Answer(s) 

The United States has announced it will not attend the Durban III summit in New York, citing the unfair demonisation of Israel as the reason, and the anti-Semitic, anti-American themes often present there. Given that the EU claims to oppose anti-Semitism and xenophobia, could the Commission comment on whether it will follow the Obama administration’s lead and boycott the event? If not, why not?
