    [02] EU welcomes Israeli, Palestinian pact

    29/06/2003 18:41:01

    The European Union on Sunday welcomed a disengagement deal by Israelis and Palestinians that the bloc sees as a move towards peace.

    ''The (EU) presidency welcomes the agreement in principle regarding the withdrawal of IDF forces from the northern part of the Gaza Strip and Bethlehem, as well as the assumption of security responsibility by Palestinian authorities in the said areas,'' the EU's Greek presidency said in a statement.

    ''The international community applauds these developments, which are the result of a compromise, and constitute an important step for the implementation of the first phase of the Road Map, the statement said.

    The EU called on the two sides to show prudence and a sense of responsibility in order to move towards a goal of peace and stability in the Middle East.

    ''The demonstrated spirit of compromise should prevail in the pursuit of the aforementioned objective,'' the statement added.
