Ramallah: Members of the European Union (EU) Parliament called for an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian land, WAFA reported Friday.
“We support the Palestinian right to self-determination and call for an end to the occupation. The EU and the European Parliament are convinced that a two-state solution is the only viable way to achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians", the EU Parliament said.
This came following a visit of the EU Parliamentary Delegation for relations with Palestine to the Occupied Palestinian Territories on September 17 to 20.
"The Trump administration’s decision to end all funding of the UNRWA undermines vital education and health services to Palestine refugees while seeking to weaken their right of return. The EU must assume its international responsibility and preserve the activities of the UNWRA," delegation MEPs said.
"Our Palestinian partners have conveyed a strong message demanding action from the European Union. We call upon the European Parliament, the Commission and the Council to take decisive action in support of Palestinians’ right to self-determination. We reiterate our call upon EU member states to recognize the state of Palestine immediately", they said.
