EU vote 'positive but not enough', says PLO's Barghouti

'Linking recognition of Palestine to resuming talks a weakness'

17 December, 15:38

    (ANSAmed) - RAMALLAH, DECEMBER 17 - Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) politician Mustafa Barhouti told ANSA on Wednesday that the EU Parliament vote on recognizing Palestinian statehood was ''a positive step but not enough''. ''The weakness of this vote,'' added Barghouti, ''is that it associates the recognition of Palestine with the resumption of talks with Israel. The positive aspect,'' he said, ''is instead the clear support from all European civil society for an autonomous Palestinian state.'' (ANSAmed).
