The EU and Israel committed themselves to establishing a partnership which provides for close political and mutually beneficial trade and investment relations together with economic, social, financial, civil scientific, technological and cultural cooperation.

The Action Plan concluded with Israel helped give new energy and focus to EU-Israel relations. Its objective is to gradually integrate Israel into European policies and programmes. Every step taken is determined by both sides and the Action Plan is tailor-made to reflect Israel’s interests and priorities as well as its level of development.

There is also, for the first time, a financial assistance element to EU-Israel cooperation - Israel is eligible for €14 million in European Community financial cooperation over the next seven years.

The legal basis for the EU’s relations with Israel is the EU-Israel Association Agreement .

As a result of the Action Plan discussions on the most contentious issue of EU-Israel relations over the years, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, have been stepped up.

2007 has seen renewed efforts by the international community, including the revitalization of the quartet, combined with increased support from regional partners for peace and stability in the Middle East. The EU believes that the creation of an independent, viable and democratic Palestinian state is in Israel’s interest.


European Neighbourhood Policy – Publication of annual progress reports The EU's annual communication and reports on the implementation of its Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), released on March 27, show a mixed picture. Although 2013 has been a year of crises in some of its partner countries, reflecting political instability and difficult socio-economic conditions, the EU has continued to support efforts to enhance democratic governance, build security and support sustainable and inclusive development. /images/top_stories/270314_enp-package.jpg Energy, one of the areas of cooperation between the EU and its Neighbours (Photo: Workers connecting a gas pipeline, EU/Arab Gas Market Project) © EU 0801262480df10c7 0801262480862884 0801262480968674 080126248091bc06 080126248096a860 080126248096a869 080126248096a872 080126248096a877 080126248096a89d 080126248096a8a8 080126248096a8af 080126248096a8c2 080126248096a8c9 080126248096a8bc 080126248096a881 08012624809686b0 080126248096854a 08012624869864f0 27/03/2014 /top_stories/2014/270314_enp_package_en.htm
