What Ireland’s PM Exactly said about Israel
“EU-Israel relations are founded on an agreement which has a human rights clause, and a lot of us believe that Israel may be in breach of it.” That’s something we’re talking about. There isn’t full agreement, but it’s something I called for today, and I called for last December.
Another thing we are talking about is recognition. That a number of EU states acting together to recognize Palestine could allow a more equal negotiation to happen after the war has ended in Gaza in and around a two-state solution.
Irish minister has repeatedly said the government is considering recognizing a Palestine state. Ireland, Belgium, Spain and few other EU countries were some of the early voices to join international criticism of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip. The latest move by Ireland comes amid global outcry over mounting deaths I Gaza.
