Gillibrand Statement on European Union’s Labeling Decision

Nov 11, 2015

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today issued the following statement on the EU’s labeling decision: 

“I am extremely disappointed by the EU’s labeling decision today. I am concerned that this action will play directly into the hands of a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that is attempting to delegitimize Israel. The only way to end this conflict is through direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians that address all final status issues, including settlements.”
