Deep concern over the us plan to resolve the israeli-palestinian conflict
As a european, devoted to promote international law, peace and security all over the world, we express our deep concern for the president's plan to Trump for the Middle East that bears the name of "Peace to Prosperity".
The plan contradicts the parameters agreed at the international level for the peace process in the Middle East, the United Nations resolutions relevant, including the resolution 2334 of the Security Council, and the fundamental principles of international law. Instead of promoting peace, runs the risk of feeding the conflict, at the expense of israeli civilians and palestinians and have serious implications for Jordan and the entire region, where he found, as well as in Europe and the United States, a widespread opposition.
The plan grants the annexation of large parts of vital and of the occupied palestinian territory, and legitimizes and encourages the illegal activity of the israeli settlements. Recognizes only the claims of a part of Jerusalem and does not offer a solution to the issue of palestinian refugees. Provides a future "Status" of the palestinian without the control or sovereignty over its fragmented territory. The map presented in the plan offers the enclave, the palestinians under military control, israeli permanent, that evoke chilling associations with the bantustan of south Africa.
"Peace to Prosperity" is not a roadmap that can lead to the solution of the two States, nor to any other legitimate conflict. The plan provides for a formalisation of the current reality in the occupied palestinian territories, where two peoples live side by side without enjoying equal rights. An outcome with characteristics that are similar to apartheid - a term that we use lightly.
The international community, in particular the European Union, must prevent this scenario from occurring, in order to preserve the dignity and the rights of the palestinians, the future of israeli democracy and the international order based on law.
we Welcome the declaration by the High Representative of the Eu, Josep Borrell, that underlines the constant commitment of the Eu to support a two-state solution based on 1967 borders, in compliance with the international parameters. We are in full agreement with the Eu on the fact that the "steps of Israel to the annexation, if implemented, may not remain unpunished", as this would compromise the international standard of the fundamental, which prohibits the acquisition of territory by force.
given the urgency of the situation, we ask Europe to reject the U.s. plan as a basis for negotiations, and to take immediate and effective measures to counter the threat of annexation, thus preserving the international order based on law .
