EP logo neg ENAuf die schriftliche Anfrage der irischen Abgeordneten Martina Anderson im EU-Parlament erklärt Vize Präsidentin Mogherini im Namen der Kommission:

The EU stands firm in protecting freedom of expression and freedom of association in line with the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, which is applicable on EU Member States' territory, including with regard to BDS actions carried out on this territory.

Freedom of expression, as underlined by the case law of the European Court of Human Rights, is also applicable to information or ideas "that offend, shock or disturb the State or any sector of the population".

The EU rejects the BDS campaign's attempts to isolate Israel and is opposed to any boycott of Israel.
