RAMALLAH, Wednesday, May 19, 2021 (WAFA) - Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh today called on the European Union to exert real pressure on Israel to stop its aggression in Gaza and East Jerusalem.

Shtayyeh received in his office in Ramallah the EU Representative Sven Kuhn von Burgsdorff to discuss the efforts to stop the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, stop the violations of the occupation forces in Jerusalem and the West Bank, and to hear about the EU efforts and its contacts with all parties to reach a cessation of aggression.

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of the existence of serious international pressure on Israel to stop its aggression against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, to stop the forced displacement of Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem and settlement expansion in the city, end its violations of the right of Palestinians and the use of excessive force to kill participants in peaceful protests in the West Bank.

He appreciated the call by the European Union’s foreign and security policy chief, Josep Borrell, for a ceasefire, stressing the importance of launching a political initiative to revive the peace process and end the occupation by working through the International Quartet.
