Statement by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean on the resumption of Israeli Palestinian talks

Statement by the
Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean
on the resumption of Israeli Palestinian talks

 


The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean  welcomes the announcement by US Secretary of State, John Kerry,  of the resumption of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

PAM wishes to express its full support to the agreement and the upcoming meeting to be held soon in Washington.

Although in its early stages this new development represents a significant step forward especially in the light of the fact that the last round of direct negotiations broke down almost three years ago.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean reiterates its commitment towards the two-state solution, where Palestinians and Israelis can live in a peaceful and prosperous environment for the benefit of current and future generations.

The Middle East remains a priority issue for PAM, which has lately organised a high level mission to Syria and Lebanon to discuss matters related to humanitarian access, facilitation of humanitarian aid delivery and confidence building measures within the framework of the process for national reconciliation between the Syrian parties in the internal conflict.
