EU promises 'unprecedented' aid for Mideast peace

Published: 12.16.13, 15:23 / Israel News

European Union foreign ministers are promising "unprecedented" amounts of political, financial and security support for Israel and the Palestinians if they come to a peace agreement.


In the event of a final peace deal, EU ministers said, the 28-member trade bloc will offer Israel and the future state of Palestine a "special privileged partnership." That will mean increased access to European markets, facilitation of trade and investment, closer cultural and scientific ties and other advantages. The ministers said the EU is prepared to "contribute substantially" to bring about a just and lasting settlement to the conflict. (AP)
