EU Statement – United Nations Security Council: Open Debate on the Middle East, including the Palestinian Question
The Middle East peace process remains a top priority for the European Union, and our policies on this issue remain clear and consistent.
We believe that it is more important than ever to uphold international consensus on the key principles underpinning the Middle East peace process – indispensable corner stones for a just and enduring peace for Israelis and Palestinians, based on the two-state solution…–Ambassador Vale de Almeida
We need a strong European Union like never before. It is what our citizens deserve and what the wider world expects. The European project which has brought unprecedented peace, prosperity and democracy is being questioned. Yet these are also times of extraordinary opportunity. Global Growth, mobility, and technological progress – alongside our deepening partnerships- enable us to thrive, and allow ever more people to escape poverty and live longer and freer lives.
