EU and Palestine sign an aid deal, providing for a future Association Agreement


“The European Union signed an aid deal Tuesday with the Palestinian prime minister to bolster ties and promote economic development against a backdrop of a stalled peace process with Israel.
EU foreign affairs head Catherine Ashton told visiting Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad that an action plan approved by EU leaders was based on a "shared commitment to deepen our bilateral relations and strengthen our privileged partnership."
The plan provides eventually for a "fully-fledged Association Agreement" with the EU, Ashton noted.”
