Middle East: MEPs to push for a two-state solution
MEPs will vote a resolution on the situation in the West Bank, as a follow-up to a debate held in November 2016 with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
They are likely to push for the EU’s objective of a two-state solution and ask High Ms Mogherini for further action to revive the peace process talks.
In a February plenary debate, MEPs criticised the current Israeli settlement policy including the so-called "Regulation Bill", which retroactively “legalises” several thousand settlements illegally built on Palestinian private land and could threaten the viability of the two-state solution. They also criticised demolitions and confiscations of many EU-funded aid structures in the West Bank.
Debate: Tuesday, 22 November 2016
