Andrew Duff Regrets ACAA Vote By EU Parliament

Andrew Duff MEP

Following the vote on the controversial EU-Israel Agreement on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products (ACAA) Andrew Duff said:

"I regret that this agreement on Israeli pharmaceuticals has been approved by the Parliament - although it is a good thing that Parliament as a whole was finally able to take a decision on this controversial question that had been blocked in committee for more than four years.

"I do not think that all the legal uncertainties surrounding ACAA have been resolved. And I trust that the Israeli government will not interpret this decision as being an expression of moral or political support for its refusal to make progress on a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian question".
