The EU delegation in Israel reacted to the words of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Europe’s policy toward the Jewish state is insane.
«The EU’s relations with Israel is deeper and wider than any third country, and we continue to develop them in the economic and political spheres. The transition to the next level should be based on our shared values, which include respect for international humanitarian law and steps toward a solution by the formula of «two States», — said in the post, published on the website of the delegation on the social network Twitter.
We will remind, on Wednesday, July 19, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Budapest during the meeting with the leaders of Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia criticized the policy of the European Union towards Israel. «The European Union is the only interstate education that leads to economic cooperation with Israel, the country supplying the technology of Europe, the implementation of political demands. This is madness,» he said.
The Prime Minister added: «I do Not want to hurt the only country in the region that cares about the interests of Europe. Stop attacking Israel, support us. Europe cuts itself from one of the most rapidly developing centers of the world, and it is completely illogical. Europe is hurting itself by trying to harm Israel with their crazy policy of nominating us».
In making these statements, Netanyahu did not know that they are in error is transferred to the journalists. In that moment, when it turned out, the broadcast was interrupted.
