The EU's position on the Irish Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018

Question for written answer P-000081-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Patrick Le Hyaric (GUE/NGL)

The Irish Seanad has passed the Occupied Territories Bill, which is designed to prohibit Ireland from trading in goods and services from Israeli-occupied territories.

Taking into account:

What is the Commission’s position concerning the Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill as an Irish State measure issued in connection with the internationally wrongful act committed by Israel with its illegal settlements?

Does the Commission, as a central authority for trade, recognise the EU’s duty of non-recognition and non-assistance in relation to the Israeli settlements, as confirmed by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and other authoritative sources of international law?
