EU will do everything necessary to fix situation in Gaza, Ashton says

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Ashton said the EU would do everything necessary to fix the situation in Gaza and keep the border gates open.

Catherine Ashton, the European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, on Thursday said the EU would do everything necessary to fix the situation in Gaza and keep the border gates open.

Ashton held a press conference following her meeting with Filippo Grandi, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), in Gaza.

"I'm here to support Palestinian refugees and UNRWA. We would like the border gates to be kept open in Gaza and the economy to improve,"  Ashton said.

"I'm working on resolving the embargo issue in Gaza. We would like a better future to await the children of Gaza. The EU would continue to provide the biggest support to UNRWA financially and politically," she noted.

Commissioner-General of UNRWA Grandi said, "We discussed the worsening situation in Gaza and the disappointment of Palestinian people following the seven year-long embargo. The issue of Palestinian refugees should be handled as one of the main issues during the negotiations between Israel and Palestine."
