EU on verge of abandoning hope for a viable Palestinian state


Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

An internal EU report seen by The Independent argues that Israel is making it nearly impossible to obtain peace with the Palestinians.

The report says “the window for a two-state solution is rapidly closing with the continued expansion of Israeli settlements and access restrictions for Palestinians in Area C [which] compromises crucial natural resources and land for the future demographic and economic growth of a viable Palestinian state”.

The 16 page report focuses on Area C of the West Bank which is the area under control of the Israeli authority and comprises of 62 per cent of the West Bank. Area C is the most fertile and also home to some 124 Jewish settlements.
