June 4th 2019

International, European, Palestinian and Israeli organizations sent a joint letter to High Representative / Vice-President Federica Mogherini and EU Foreign Ministers to express their serious concern about the forthcoming US Middle East peace plan.

The letter calls on the European Union and its Member States to lead on Israel/Palestine with a human rights-based approach and reject a plan which does not embrace these basic principles

In view of the US-led economic workshop, taking place in Bahrain on 25-26 June, the letter urges the EU and its Member States should be prepared to counter any economic and political efforts to normalise Israel’s control and annexation of the occupied Palestinian territory.
