Foreign Ministry Regrets EU Statement

(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
25 December 1998

The Foreign Ministry regrets a statement by the European Union yesterday (Thursday) 24.12.98 on the peace process, as it is based on mistakes and incorrect evidence. Israel therefore rejects the statement. The Foreign Ministry has instructed its representatives in the European Union capitals to explain that Israel is prepared to implement the Wye agreement, and to explain the Palestinian violations that have prevented the agreement’s implementation.
