Parliamentary questions
22 February 2013
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Fiona Hall (ALDE)

 Subject:  NGO Report — ‘Trading Away Peace: How Europe helps sustain illegal Israeli settlements’

In October 2012, a report entitled ‘Trading Away Peace: How Europe helps sustain illegal Israeli settlements,’ was published by a number of European NGOs.

This report outlines the economic links between Europe and the illegal settlements, naming the most common settlement products sold in Europe and detailing the involvement of European companies. The report also analyses European and national policies relevant to trade and other linkages with these settlements.

Given that the EU regards the Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory as illegal under international law and an obstacle to peace, will the Commission take any of the measures proposed in this report to ensure that the policies and actions of the EU and its Member States do not directly or indirectly support entrenchment and expansion of illegal settlements?
