KKE delegation in EU Parliament denounces plans to move US Embassy to Jerusalem

KKE MEP Kostas Papadakis (up) submitted
the Question to EU's Federica Morgherini.
In a Question submitted to the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, the KKE EU Parliament delegation denounces as "provocative" the US government's announcement regarding the beginning of the procedure to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. 

More specifically, the Question submitted by KKE MEP Kostas Papadakis is the following:

"It has been officially announced by the government of the United States that it starts the procedure for the transfer of the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem which, as it was stated, is in "early stages". This move was accompanied by the statements of the israeli occupational forces that they plan:

i) the construction of over 500 new residences for israeli settlers in East Jerusalem

ii) the construction 2,500 new residences for israeli settlers in West Bank.

These dangerous developments consist one more proof of the US and Israel's aggressiveness in the region, in which the EU is traditionally in line. They create the soil for new escalation of the competitions in the region which, once more, will be paid by the blood of the people.

- What is the stance of the EU in the provocative announcement for the beginning of the US Embassy transfer's procedure which encourages the aggresiveness of the israeli leadership and strengthens the occupation against the palestinian people?"
