EU Says Assassination Bad News For Peace Process

EU High Representative for the CFSP, condemns the killing of Sheikh Yassin

Javier Solana, EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), made the following comments after today's killing of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in Gaza:

"The European Union has consistently condemned 'extra judicial killings'. In this particular case, the condemnation has to be even stronger. These type of actions do not contribute to dialogue and peace in the region.

Neither will they bring less violence. The actions of today are bad news for the peace process.

The discussion about a possible withdrawal from Gaza had just started. Today's action will not facilitate a positive outcome."
