By K.A. Pandey
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s Transportation Minister slammed the European Union’s decision on an Israeli grain expressway on Tuesday and said it would go ahead unless it was rewritten.
EU transport commissioner Helga Schmid said the proposal was designed to give Israel preferential access to agricultural markets but should be rewritten to make it less attractive to international buyers.
“I think that this is one of the most dangerous examples of a proposal based on principle that is not based on the reality on the ground,” Schmid said after meetings with German, French and Swedish transport ministers, Reuters reporters in her office said.
“I think what’s being proposed has the potential to create a situation where international buyers will not like to be involved in a project that has serious consequences for this country in which a large majority of its population lives.”
Schmid, head of the E양산출장마사지U’s rail authority, and U.S. Senator Tom Coburn are among 16 senators to file a petition urging European Union President Dona이천출장안마ld Trump to pull out of NAFTA, the온라인 슬롯 머신 사이트 North American Free Trade Agreement that is the cornerstone of a free trade system in the region.
Trump has called the agreement a “disaster”.
EU trade officials have been discussing reworking an agreement with Israel known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trade in Services (CPSA) with Schmid’s office and other EU officials, in hopes the Palestinian Authority could make it a priority.
Israel and the Palestinians have been wrangling for years over how much to get in in the future under an agreement that ended a three-month Gaza war in 2007.
