Letter to Ashton on Palestinian request for United Nations membership

26/09/2011 – Over the past few weeks, the EU and member states have been involved in intense negotiations regarding possible initiatives at the United Nations on Palestinian statehood. The PA may also request a resolution from the UN General Assembly. The EU must use its influence to ensure that any such resolution, initiative or agreement fully respects the human rights of Palestinians and Israelis, including access to justice, truth and reparations.
